Ariella at Chalk Hill Clematis, day three

Written by


Our final day with Ariella at Chalk Hill Clematis was spent creating the most amazing table top for a dinner party in the olive grove. The theme colors were yellow, silver, soft brown and turquoise.


Tree peonies reigned queen accompanied by ‘Golden Celebration’ rose, honeysuckle vine, snowball viburnum, parrot tulips, eleagnus foliage, olive leaves, clematis tendrils, bearded iris, ranunculus, alstromeria, copper beech foliage, white rambling roses and variegated geranium leaves.


Every ingredient in the mix was amazing!


We pulled out all the stops from gorgeous linens, custom chair back covers and coordinating seat cushions, to paper covered hurricanes, hand lettered place cards and pearl handled flatware.


The end effect was jaw droppingly beautiful!!!


After hustling all day to get everything created, set up and photographed, we then got to toast to our hard work and enjoy a delicious meal at the table, under the olive grove as the sun set.


What a spectacular finale to an insanely amazing experience!!!

    such beautiful arrangements! i hate to even call them “arrangements…they look like they just floated in from the garden and imperfectly perfectly settled & and made themselves at home in just the right vessels.

    what do you use to anchor the flowers into their containers? frogs? wet foral foam? nothing?
