A Dozen White DahliasSeptember 28, 2012
I am always looking for ways to stretch the visual impact of flowers. There was the sweetest bunch of a dozen white dahlias at the Market last week-end, and I really wanted to use them on the dining table for our Sunday supper with guests.
By cutting the stems really short, and resting the head of the dahlia on the lip of the glass, it created a sort of floating effect.
By marching the glasses in a random scattering down the table, the setting seems filled with blooms.
The clear votive candles would be placed randomly around the flowers to fill in a bit, and create a glow and flicker.
All set. The simple bunch of white dahlias doing the trick as single stems in clear water glasses.
The glow against the zinc top table of the votives and the scattering of the flowers made for a magical night once the sun set and everything was cleared from the table.
