Floral Designs for an Art Show

I was invited to create a floral design for the desert table at an art show in our community.  I used the traditional Fall plant material - cattails, mums, safflower in a contemporary design.

My friend, Christine, made this floral design for the wine and cheese table.

The evening was so much fun - sipping a glass of wine, looking at the art, and meeting neighbors.

Serenity Garden Tea House and Cafe, W. Palm Beach, FL

What a great place for lunch or afternoon tea - The Serenity Garden Tea House in West Palm Beach.

Its located at 316 Vallette Way, near Flamingo Park.

There is a beautiful garden as you enter the restaurant

I always loved these flower bicycles.

We started with a tomato basil soup, enjoyed tea sandwiches, scones, and delicious deserts.

Each table is set differently - all are so inviting.  You can bring a crowd (we had 34) or go alone.  Can't wait to go back.
