I often compare flower arranging to cooking, they are so similar in many ways, and always use the words ingredients and recipes, when I talk about flower arranging (to some peoples surprise).
As you might know, I also have a flower arranging book called Handpicked as well as a second book launching this fall where we feature flower "recipes".
So needless to say, when our good old friends at The Gathery and Pinch Food Design reached out to ask us if we would be interested in writing recipes for a new catering concept they were working on we were beyond thrilled! The results became an ongoing project for a company called Party by Numbers that delivers something I saw described on BizBash as "the fanciest Seamless" you will could ever dream up.
Basically, upon delivery, a beautifully designed cart, full of delicious food, cocktails, wine, ceramic plates and serving bowls, glassware, cutlery, linens, a blue tooth speaker, candles, and most importantly of all of course FLOWERS, is rolled straight into your home. From here on all you need to do is open some drawers and put the perfectly curated food, decor and beverages out with everything you need to party – even the ice! Seriously? Sign us up, right...?!
Below are some descriptions and pictures of a few of the floral concepts we put together for this amazing, all sustainable, party concept with a 100% zero waste pledge:
There is l'artiste with peachy blooms and reimagined foliage inspired by the vibrant play of shape and colors of Matisse’s remarkable cutouts. Then Marfa brings you boldness with blue thistle and cadmium red blooms in a vase inspired by optical and geometric illusions reminiscent of Dan Flavin’s light installations. Another one of the food and decor concepts is Sorrento with fragrant anemones, mimosa, olive and lemon branches that ignite memories of the perfect sip of limoncello. Lastly we present Marjorelle, where dusty dry arrangements of cacti and palm leaves are completed with delicate and fragrant white flowers nestled in shapely artisan-like vases.
For the remaining concepts, and to check out this incredible party experience solution that we are proud to be a part of, please visit Party by Numbers. You can thank us for bringing this to your attention later... or simply invite us to your perfect party!
