The floral design for the tables at the Heart Foundation event honoring Wolfgang Puck featured an unusual combination of white dendrobium and protea with a base of crushed red glass in an assortment of square silver containers finished with square frosted votives.
The five-by-eight-foot table was an unusual shape and we created a larger-than-normal arrangement on it. However, a pin spot wouldn’t capture the entire arrangement so we used a leko shuddered in instead. Perfect.
Here is another view of the same thing. You don’t always need a lot of flowers; well-selected containers and complementary votive candle holders can add a whole other dimension.
I shot the hour just before the event then gave the camera to Jahon because I knew he would capture different angles and boy did he. This is such a beautiful picture. It had nothing to do with the party but look at the texture in the protea and how beautiful a flower can be. Wow!
Adding white dendrobium orchids on top of the protea gave the design a whole different perspective.

Very top photo: There was a sea of protea in our warehouse for a day before they went out to the job. Every time I walked by I stopped to gaze at these, and finally took this picture.
