~Flower Arranging, Fiori style~

This is what I made in my dear friend Miles's
Seattle floral shop, Fiori Floral, last night!!!
Isn't it beautiful??? The picture does NOT do it justice!
Miles invited my sister Sylvia and I to participate in one of his flower arrangement classes and man did we have fun!!! We also learned a ton of tips and tricks for floral arrangement, which is something Syl and I love to do! The arrangement is PACKED with beautiful flowers, no scrimping in his shop! Just when we thought we were done, he'd bring out more flowers for us to play with including orchids from New Zealand, wonderful scented geraniums, leaves to make ribbon bows,  and one of Fiori's specialties, using fruit with flowers and last night we used limes. Fun, fun fun!
We started out with a vase of beautiful variegated greenery and to that we added hydrangeas, peonies, Queen Anne's lace, and roses. As if it didn't look beautiful enough with just those elements, he brought out the finishing touches of orchids, geraniums, limes and the leaves that we made the ribbons with. WOW!!!
