For Sunday's deliveries, I created three color combinations: coral, blush and purple. Admittedly, it's pretty difficult to shop for three color palettes in the same shopping trip. Thankfully, I had Pete to help me keep my stem count and color combination straight and a bale of unripened blueberries for inspiration.
BTW, I reached my first milestone. I finished an entire (small) roll of cellophane! I use a combination of cellophane and waxed tissue paper to help my arrangements. I bought the roll in February and didn't think I'd finish it until next February. Who knew?

|Blush Arrangement: 'Gardenia' peonies, 'Festiva Maxima' peonies, 'Miranda'|
garden roses, viburnum, unripened blueberries and mountain laurel
I think this is my favorite out of the set.
|Why can't unripened blueberries be available always?|
|Purple & Pink: purple and pink peonies (don't know the exact names), 'Rosalinda' garden roses, 'China Pink' hyacinths,|
mountain laurel, unripened blueberries and viburnum
I'll post pics from Friday's arrangements after dinner tonight (only if I don't pass out straight after).
