More flowers from the Jim Valvano Gala in Pinehurst tonight. I made this large arrangement in the corner of a very tall stairwell. The container is about 7 feet off the floor, so the arrangement is 11-12 feet tall and about 4 feet wide. It uses bamboo, red heliconia, green goddess calla lilies, orange unique roses, lime green Fuji mums, monstera leaves and other greens.
One of the 57 centerpieces we provided. The linens were sage green, hot orange and hot pink. Some of the tables had bright gold striped overlays.
"Orange Unique" roses, used on cocktail tables.
Serious sport has nothing to do with fair play. It is bound up with hatred, jealousy, boastfulness, disregard of all rules and sadistic pleasure in witnessing violence. In other words, it is war minus the shooting.
George Orwell, writer (1903-1950)
GO HERE!! You'll thank me for it.
Tomatoes and oregano make it Italian; wine and tarragon make it French. Sour cream makes it Russian; lemon and cinnamon make it Greek. Soy sauce makes it Chinese; garlic makes it good.
