Kellie Jackstien, Owner of Artisan Bloom, staged large orbs of floral foam covered in mauve, merlot and bi-toned carnations that appear to float atop tall glass cylinder vases.
“Carnations aren’t everybody’s favorite, but they come in the best colors, they’re hardy and inexpensive,” she says. “With a fresh application like this, they can be fantastic.”
Jackstien used 105 carnation flowers to cover the largest water-soaked floral foam ball, 8-inches in diameter.
“These will stay fresh for as long as a week if misted daily.”
