Sunday Bouquet: Color Forecast in Flowers

Earlier this fall I received a surprise delivery from Winston Flowers, compliments of  Valspar Paint. So much better than a press release, Valspar worked with the impeccable Boston florist Winston Flowers to create an arrangement that reflects the paint color trends for 2017. 

Valspar created a collection of 12 paint colors meant to revitalize your home in the coming year. The paint color trends chips, a beautiful mix of dusky, but pretty cool and warm earth and sky/water tones is below. Perhaps Winston Flowers should offer this as a signature arrangement for fall?

Sunday Bouquet: Bloom Couture Floral Studio

My lovely publicist friend Cristina Moniz asked her client, Bloom Couture Floral Studio, a new florist in Boston’s South End, to deliver a gorgeous floral arrangement for a brunch I hosted at home on Friday. The arrangement has a distinctly modern Japanese aesthetic, as does all of their work. (Gallery of floral arrangements from Bloom Couture here.)

The green & white centerpiece included white roses and tulips, agapanthus, silver brunia, dianthus, and a monstera leaf in a matte white vase. They all have such interesting shapes and textures.

I’m not sure what these are. Anyone know?

The delicate long white flowers on the skinny green stem are agapanthus; the balls underneath, often used in boutonnieres are silver brunia, and even I know this, those are graceful white tulips on the right.

Flowers: Carrie Chang Floral Lab

Floral designer Carrie Chang of Floral Lab dropped off this exquisite arrangement for me last night. (So nice!) The pretty spring blooms are nestled in a moss handbag planter that you can re-use in your garden. She suggests re-planting it with African violets. Perhaps I will! Meanwhile, I’m loving the added color to my dining room, and the cat hasn’t even tried to munch on them yet. Thanks Carrie!
