Few things could make the day more picturesque on Thursday than a special party hosted by the American Friend's of the Louvre. The AFL, an organization that promotes and strengthens ties between the Louvre and the American public, kindly asked us to provide the flowers for their event at the French Ambassador to the United States' residence.Our floral design for the evening (literally) reflected the living room's gold and red fabric tones, white walls and dark wood accents. Working with the interior's own color scheme, we filled a mirrored container that echoed the mirrored fireplace with yellow cymbidium orchids, two types of red roses (Freedoms and Black Magics), black callas and of course, local white peonies that are so beautiful at this time of year. Apart from complimenting the space, the arrangements integrated seamlessly into the home's extensive French art collection. As with all of our special projects, we enjoy the work that goes into the final result - especially when art is involved. Afterall, how could an Art History major like myself resist the chance to combine art and flowers?
