Flower Recipe Friday with Studio Stems

We here at UBB love recipe Friday’s, we love flowers, and we also know you do too! {Thanks to all your feedback!} We are quickly headed into the colder months of the year and that typically brings a change of color palette, this year we anticipate that we will see a lot of jewel tones, moody hues, and unique varieties of blooms through the winter season. Studio Stems joins us today with a look at a simple and moody centerpiece along with its components! Thanks to Lindsey Orton for photography.

Thanks to UBB for a fun year of recipe’s! This will be my last for the 2014 year but I sure have enjoyed sharing with you readers various bloom and foliage choices used in arrangements I have made.

Metallics remain on trend but I think we are going to see a shift from gold back into silver and pewter tones as winter comes on and as trends change and shape up in 2015. This textured urn bowl is a fav among our clients here at Studio Stems so we decided to use it for our recipe arrangement. One of my favorite roses for a little bit of mood seeping through a lighter tone is the “early gray” rose, it has just the right amount of language coming from its depth of color. The deep rich tone of the dahlia used here adds even more depth, the “piano” garden rose brings in a brighter jewel tone of red adding some interest, the red magnolia leaf ties the two red tones together. Without an added color this arrangement would read maybe a little holiday with the red, the lighter tone of rose, and all the foliage, but it is completely changed by adding the delicate light blue tone of the delphinium, just goes to show how drastically something can evolve with the addition of one element!
