English Garden Luncheon

We were fortunate to be asked to create centerpieces for a surprise 70th birthday celebration at the Epicurean Restaurant in Phoenixville. The "birthday girl" had an English garden and a love for peonies, hydrangea, and soft colors. Since English gardens are known to often contain relics, we used pottery that looked like it was very old and moss covered. We grouped our flowers together - yellow freesia, pink tipped white tulips, pink ranunculus, and dark pink peonies in beautiful lavender/blue hydrangea - to create more of a look that would resemble a garden. Luckily we were able to find peonies in Israel as these are her favorite flower. And we added whimsical touches of bird houses, nests, and butterflies. The room looked lovely and I'm sure that a good time was had by all.
