Bouquets to Art 2009 Part I

Yesterday we had a marvelous time feeding our souls at the DeYoung Museum's Bouquets to Art. There's one day left to see the exhibit of floral designs which interpret works of art. Here are some photos of floral artwork of wedding professionals we know and admire.

Isabella Sikaffy, Florabella
Isabella used pastel colored flowers to respresent the airiness of the impressionistic painting, and topped it off with orange flowers to highlight the girl's red-hair.

Pat Gibbons of Pat Gibbons Florals created this refreshing arrangement of white phaelanopsis orchids with bleached white curly willow as both an element of the arrangement and an element of the container. It was one of the most restful works of art we saw.  You can definitely imagine this arrangement at a stylish wedding!

Here is the inspiration for Rhonda Stoffel of Grace Street Floral and Event Design. Now see how she interpreted the grace and cool elegance of the marble statue with white anthuriums and various greens. You can feel the same flowing texture in the skirt symbolized by the rings of bear grass.

Laurel Winzler, Laurel Designs
Laurel interpreted a Mayan rubbing, with her floral arrangement emphasizing the harshness of life where everytime you played a soccer game, you were playing for your life, with human sacrifices to follow. 

Mandy Scott, Mandy Scott Flowers
Mandy covered a picture frame in leaves to symbolize the bookstore window in the painting. Then, she used a variety of tulips to symbolize the books in the painting.

Paige Benjamin of Passiflora Designs is known for her use of color and fanciful balls of fresh flowers. Love what she's done with the curly willow to expand this creation's reach. Even the shadow it casts on the wall is artistic.
