Birthdays By The Decade

Christine Pugh (Florist) COVENTRY, RI
In my family, we have a wide assortment of people all born in years ending in 8; which meant that this year, they would all be turning a variety of ages ending in 0: from my cousin turning 20 to my grandmother turning 80. My grandmother wanted to celebrate this occasion with a party to bring together close family and friends in recognition of this rather remarkable feat. She asked for my help in finding centerpieces as our local florist would be on vacation that week. I knew just where to turn and began looking up different red and white flower options (her requested colors). Another family friend was tasked with creating the ten wooden boxes that would house the centerpieces. Sticking with the ... rustic look, I opted for more of a wildflower-like feel and trusted that the combo packs would supply us with enough texture and variety. When the day came to put together the centerpieces, I created one box with one-tenth of the flowers, finding the right balance and fullness. Then it was really simple to plug in the rest of the flowers in the same pattern for the remaining boxes. This way, they were all equally filled but still unique with the natural variation of each flower. I can't thank FiftyFlowers enough for having these great combo packs available and always coming through with beautiful flowers that make me look so good! Show more

Flowers Used for Christine Pugh's Arrangements

Used for: Centerpieces

This filler was AMAZING. The gerbera daisies were showstoppers and added such a gorgeous focal point to each centerpiece. We received ones with dark centers that paired wonderfully with the red roses and spray roses. Our vases (boxes) were so low that I was able to cut many of the smaller daisies and statice into even more stems to add texture and interest all over the centerpieces.

Make Your Own Flower Centerpieces Combo Box ( Make Your Own Flower Centerpieces Combo Box )

Used for: Centerpieces

This combo box was a great add on to our standard roses and other combo pack. Unfortunately, our spray roses didn't open up very much. The photos are from the day before the party, but they didn't splay open much more on the day of. It still ended up working out for us as we had purchased more focal flowers. The berries and aster really helped in adding some different shapes and fullness. We ordered red spray roses and red hypericum berries.

Red Ecuadorian Roses ( 50 Roses )

Used for: Centerpieces

We received the "Freedom" rose; what a perfect coincidence for our celebration the week of Independence Day. They arrived almost exactly as you see them in the photos; a very beautiful, true red color and already opened up nicely!
