Modern Fall Arrangement

Monday, September 21st, 2009

Fall offers us some of the most vibrant colors. Bright oranges and yellows can really pop against other darkening flora of the season. We have captured the Fall colors in silk. To keep the arrangement modern, group flowers and greens, keep shapes simple and distinct, and turn up the color contrast. Here, we used bright orange Chinese Lanterns, yellow Chrysanthemums, deep plum Hydrangeas, Fall branches, and a large Agave bush.

After 20 years of working with designers, CFD definitely understands designer emergencies. A good example of this occurred on August 21st. RSA Films wanted thousands of silk orchids overnighted to be a main feature for Whitney’s new big comeback video “I Look to You”. CFD was able to supply them all in time for the video production. Check out Ms. Houston’s brand new video!

Thursday, September 10th, 2009

Central Park’s Conservatory Garden on 105th Street and 5th Avenue is always a treat. It is Central Park’s only formal garden that includes an English garden, an Italian garden, and a French garden. Best of all, visiting the garden is free. For more information, see Central Park’s official webpage on the Conservatory Garden.

Our Fall hydrangea arrangement is inspired by the darkening Hydrangeas in the English garden.
