I find it humorous that the whole "purple flower" theme is continuing -- completely unintentionally might I add!
There's something to be said about simplicity. I'm a huge fan of arrangements containing one variety of flower (flashback to the days when Martha Stewart was the authority on all things design -- she's still a huge proponent of single variety arrangements). They're clean and fresh and really speak to certain personalities. These tulip arrangements made a statement of their own. The thing I love about tulips is their refusal to be tamed. People think they are a meek little flower, but anyone who has spent time with them knows they have a mind of their own. They are extremely sensitive to light and tend to bend towards the sun. They also continue to grow in the water after they've been cut (did you know that?). This makes them best suited for more textured, free-form designs. Luckily, this bride wanted just that. Can you think of a better way to perk up an inversion-plagued day like today?
