It's always nice to be asked to do whatever you want! But in return it means my client gets a unique mix of flowers, some of which may only be available that week on the market. I had originally envisioned a darker, dramatic palette for some arrangements to decorate a stage at the Shaw Conference Centre. However, by the time January hit, I think everyone in Edmonton was craving something bright and springy. Forsythia was available for the first time this year and I took my cues from it - pairing it with some gorgeous 'Flaming Evita' tulips, lemons and white amaryllis to bring a pop that could be seen from the back of the hall.
