We’ve booked our first birthday party!

Art In Bloom will be filled with creative energy and giggles in late January when I host a birthday party for soon-to-be seven year old, Kate. About a month ago, Kate and her mom provided a short list of topics that would be of interest to them and I came up with a quote containing three different themed studio sessions. They have selected a Picasso animal sculpture activity that will entail taking a favorite animal, twisting and rearranging the features Picasso-style, and working with ink, oil pastels, yarn, beads and more on heavy weight card stock to create the animal’s portrait in Cubism. Here is a great book that I always love to introduce with this activity: “When Pigasso Met Mootisse.” Look for more photos to come of Kate’s party!

Holiday Parties

I have had so much fun lately designing floral pieces for various local events from large elaborate parties to small intimate gatherings. Here are a few pictures of some of my favorite creations of this season…with more to come as we head through to the New Year!

A tall glass cylinder filled with gold wire serves as the base for holiday evergreens, white fresh blooms and gold/silver trim. This was placed in the foyer of a home to welcome guests attending a party.

A low centerpiece with a natural, woodsy theme created for a family gathering. Frosted berries, birds and feathers accent the greenery with a few blooms of Star of Bethlehem.

Drama in a red glass hurricane with pink mink protea, red roses, white orchid sprays and oversized pearl accents. This was ordered as a gift from a local business woman to a client.
