Received Burgundy, But Just As Gorgeous

Alexis Pagoulatos (Daughter) Long Branch, NJ
I was throwing my mother a small milestone birthday party with about 30 people and wanted to fill the room with interesting, unique flowers in a DIY fashion. I created vases out of mason jars and lace trim and needed a flower that would do all the heavy lifting visually to elevate the decor. I originally ordered the Raspberry Plum, but due to supply issues, was asked if Burgundy would suffice or if I wanted something different. But I opted for the Burgundy and they came out beautifully and possibly closer to what I would have wanted in color anyway. They were an interesting mix of deep purple and a burgundy red. Not something I would have known to pick, but the red was relatively scarce in this ... batch and just added a really interesting element. Everyone loved the flowers and they were easy to work with. I'd highly recommend. Show more

Flowers Used for Alexis Pagoulatos's Arrangements

Used for: Centerpieces

Due to supply issues, they asked to switch me to burgundy instead of raspberry plum. I agreed and what came was absolutely gorgeous. It turned out to be a great color and the flowers opened as expected. I separated out the small buds upon arrival and placed them in a warm window with lots of sun and they all opened in time. The rest that were already opened, I placed in a cool dark room and they stayed beautifully. Got rave reviews the entire event.
