Colorful Arrangement

The Martha Stewart Show, April 2009


Color defines the type of blooms you can and should choose from. Bright yellow and orange call for tulips and daffodils, romantic pinks call for peonies and sweet peas, and deep, rich jewel tones call for roses and hydrangeas. 

The color you choose can define the entire look and feel of your event -- try to avoid themes, and remember that a beautiful color palette is more than enough to build a fabulous design scheme.

Featured Flowers
Martha's Arrangement
The arrangement featured hot-pink, magenta, fuchsia, deep-purple and vibrant red tones: anemones, sweet peas, ranunculus, callas, parrot tulips, garden roses, spray roses, nerines, peonies, jasmine, and vine orchids.

Matthew Robbin's Arrangement
Another version of Martha's color palette but in all deep-purple and lilac tones: lilac, hyacinth, sweet peas, and muscari

Care Tips for Arrangements
Change the water and re-cut daily. Also, add floral food and keep blooms in a cool space.

    I watched the show this morning and there was a deep red rose in one of the displays. I was wondering what type of rose it is and its availability.
    Thank you!
