Tabletop Water Gardens
We don't often uses irises, choosing instead longer lasting flowers for our arrangements. When a local synagogue asked us to create centerpieces for their annual gala fundraiser at Russell Dean Lowell Catering's Lake Union location, we thought these flowers, often found in water gardens, were the perfect choice.
We paired them with galax leaves, equisitum, ming fern and river rocks in a low ceramic vase to create a water garden effect. We sprinkled more of the rocks on the table to complement the look.
Rented potted palms soften the lines of the tent.
