It all starts when something catches your eye. These dahlias on Saturday almost had a painterly quality to them. Sort of like the bits of red had been spattered on to them. They would be the centerpiece to our Sunday supper dining table.
Out came the tablecloth with the red stripes that would play off of those amazing flecks on the blooms. Simple clear drinking glasses would do the trick as I really wanted the flowers to be super low. 2 reasons really. The family we had to dinner had young kids, and I really wanted for them to be able to see everyone at the table. Secondly, there is just something special about glancing down upon a bloom and really being able to take it all in. Each one of these flowers were so unique in their own way, I really wanted each to shine. With the table all set, we were ready to welcome guests for an island afternoon & supper.
