Art in Bloom

Last Friday and Saturday my friends Rachael, Ashley and I competed in Art in Bloom.  It's a flower arranging competition that pairs artwork with flower arrangements.  We choose a challenging piece that wasn't my style at all. 

Here is the artwork that we chose to do.  


We talked a lot about what we wanted to do with this piece.  We decided to use feminine flowers and colors to balance out the masculinity of this piece.   We also decided not to buy any flowers this year.  We were able to get all of our flowers from our own gardens and from the garden of one other friend. I love the colors we chose.  So pretty!!



Here it is all set up in the gallery.


It's always fun to see what other people do do I snapped some pictures of other arrangements.




There were 12 total arrangements and we came in 4th place.  The last 2 years we came in 2nd so 4th place was disappointing but we had fun and we will definitely do it again next year!
