We don’t know about you, but here at Curran’s Flowers, we love a good summertime soiree.
There’s something about this season that invites us to relax, unwind and indulge. There’s the sense that we can move from indoors to out and back again, transitioning between a quiet table on the patio to the formal one inside. We entertain with the idea of putting our guests at ease and celebrating the long, temperate days that stretch into the night. Our soirees are soundtracked to cicada and serve up the garden’s goodies—heaping salads accented by colorful vegetables. On our dinner menus, delights such as ceviche and sangria appear, as though we can finally get away with serving spicy, citrusy, brightly-flavored food. The flowers we use to accent our menus and our gatherings in general should be just as bright.
The colors involved in our Garden Treasures Bowl cover the bright part. We love how unexpectedly well Gerbera daisies pair with orchids—who knew? This arresting piece is all about a vibrant palette balanced by a softer one. Texture creates even more interest, and all of it speaks to the relaxed elegance of a summertime dinner party.
A few of these designs set about on various tables are all the decoration you need when the world is green and growing outside and the food just as vivid on the table.
