Poppies and Punch Bowls

Last week we noticed Poppies on our growers cut flower list and decided we needed to get some.  Poppies aren’t generally used as cut flowers so we wanted to see what these would be like.

They were a little work but totally worth it!



We used some of the white poppies for a large centerpiece order that we received for the Chancellors Residence.

They requested that we make something to go inside a beautiful antique punch bowl that they had found at the residence.  We made it in a clear design bowl and then dropped it down inside the punch bowl at the location.  It was a nice change from a traditional centerpiece and complimented the size of the room and table very well.  Anything else would have been swallowed up.  It’s always important when you are planning to order or make a centerpiece that you keep in mind the size of the table and the room that it is in.  It might also be fun and different to look around your house to see what you might already have to make the centerpiece in.
