Take an old, chair carcass, cover it with moss, set the chair on the table as a center piece. My friend Laure is a floral artist.
Need a shelf? Laure uses an old bench as one, hooks it to the wall, adds vases of flowers, starts a conversation by such a piece. The world does not need to be as we know it, things can be different, or at least lead as in a new direction. Who says a bench is for sitting on?
Find a dead tree, bring it into your home, hang a chandelier from it. Sit underneath it and take time under its shade. Talk about winter and believe in the promise of spring.

Faded roses, broken dishes, and a few pebbles, glamor is not ordinary, everyday can be a holiday and a reason to buy flowers is not needed.
Life as art. Take what you have and let it color your day.
Flowers on hand.
Did you know the grass is greener depending on the season?
Laure's floral artistry adorns hotels, restaurants, events, weddings and kitchen tables.
Laure worked at the famous and most expensive hotel in Paris... the Crillion. She also gives classes on creating with flowers.
