I recently produced this vibrant arrangement for a pitch we had with a major Cable Network. The event would be for one of my favorite foodcentric shows. The thought of presenting and winning the business beyond excited me!  I needed this arrangement to be unforgettable! Needless to say, I wanted to capture the essence of the show and the network with a unique floral arrangement that featured non-floral elements, interesting fruits and/or vegetables of some sort  along with some beautiful bold, modern and vibrant colors. I was first drawn to the delectable artichoke which served as the inspiration for the colors. Next I saw a bunch of kumquats which I knew just had to be included. Mix in the magenta and purple peonies and anemones and I was almost done. I then added these incredibly unique stems that featured these hard shells that looked like bells and poppy pods. While you cannot see it in this picture I put the flowers in a sage green colander and accented it with a wooden spoon.

What do you think the reaction will be at the Critics’ Table???? I guess you’ll just have to wait and see!
