Pompon Dahlia, Cactus Dahlia, Amaranthus, Pomegranates, Acer crimson king and Rosehips were placed inside a copper-hued urn topped with pumpkins to celebrate the plethora autumnal vegetation brings about, while Pompon Dahlia, David Austin roses, Nandina Domestica, Aster Tataricus and Acer palmatum alluded to the sober classics of a refined indoor fete.
With an exuberant mind towards olfactory experiences Maria put together Helianthus tuberosus, Helianthus annuus, Zinnia, Rosehips, and Pomegranates whilst adding to the festive pre-spring spirit with a centerpiece made up of Anemone Dahlias, Cosmos, Rosehips, Nandina Domestica, and Asparagus setaceus. Their heady yet fresh and green scent was delicately nuanced with fruity, milky notes.
Painterly Decorative Dahlias, Tagetes erecta, Cosmos, Malus Domestica, and Ammi majus melded with quinces to give freshness a sensual twist. Pompon Dahlias, Citrus calamondin, Asparagus Dens. “Meyers”, Helianthus annuus and Rudbeckia became a nod to the bright auburn autumnal sunsets and our cozy nights by the fire.
If Dutch Masters were to paint a centerpiece that would be a Delft vase topped with Zinnia, Cactus Dahlias, Tagetes erecta, Acer palmatu, and Gossypium hirsutism (cotton buds) or a stately city dinner iron pot complete with Cosmos, Pompon Dahlias, Lunaria, Nandina Domestica, and Rubus idaeus. Finally, our cottage-style arrangement emerging from a dried-pumpkin-vase called for David Austin roses, Pompon Dahlias, Asparagus setaceus, Rosehips, and Amaranthus.
Αs centerpieces are not the only florals to crown a celebration, Maria combined blooms and spores from these arrangements to craft two different bouquets, one where classical whites turned bright with pops of color and a playful one combining shades of orange and pink.
