Recently I have been tending towards a more pastel palette, but today the jewel tones struck.
Bold, vibrant and dramatic, there they be.
Check out that moss on the steps! Not officially part of the arrangement, but it certainly got the "Be bright! Be bold!" memo.
I typically let amaranth spill over the edges of the vase- I love the way it cascades downward, creating a strong sense of movement. In this arrangement, I also wove a strand of it through the middle of the arrangement (see above), and really liked this effect- like a little river of lime green beads swirling through the flowers.
Jewel tones, I like you. I think you're a keeper.
