Kellie Jackstien, Owner of Artisan Bloom,  showcases four colorful anemones in a surprising container—a stemless champagne flute.

“It’s uniquely appropriate for a cocktail party,” she explains. She included a chocolate geranium leaf to make the anemones’ violet and pink tones stand out.

“Green and purple are so spectacular together,” says the designer, who wanted to highlight the individuality of the blossoms.

“If I used a mass of flowers, you would lose the beauty of the individual blooms.”
