Picture yourself at a grand event with a luxurious tropical theme. A larger-than-life floral arrangement sets the mood with deep red protea and ginger blooms that fade to pink anthurium and then, finally, to a cascade of white orchids. On the dining tables scattered about, the glamour continues with gold accents in the flatware, fine cloth napkins, and menu cards that pop against dramatic coral-red tablecloths. It might be a while yet before we can enjoy such an affair, but floral and event designer Leneille Moon of Special Event Factory (@specialeventfactory) based in Atlanta brings the concept to life in this video workshop. Watch above to learn how she creates an ombré arrangement using tropical flowers, and find more details below.
