Jade Anniversary

Once again we were privileged to create decor for the annual Mayor’s Arts Awards with the Arts Council of Southwestern Indiana.  Following the symbols of traditional wedding anniversaries, this year’s 35th anniversary of the awards called for a jade theme.

Victory Theater Stage

Guests begin their night in the lobby of the Victory Theater, mingling with and watching local artists create within their art form.  The crowd moves backstage to the buffet before moving to the stage for dinner.  The night ends with the awards in auditorium.

Many local residents may recognize the view of the stage seen in the first photo but this is a gorgeous look of what the theater looks like to those performing on the stage.

Bud vases and candles are a perfect touch for bistro tables.

Bistro tables were decorated with a bud vase with green and white flowers, to follow along with the jade theme, and candles.  The white rose-like flower is a lisianthus and is one of our favorite flowers to use.  The fiber-optic look of the frosted explosion grass creates an interesting texture.

Bar arrangement created with dahlias, sedum, green mist ammi, tuberose, and greenery.

Almost all of the flowers and greenery used for this event were from local flower farms.  We are proud of our effort to shop local whenever we can.  Buying from local farms is good for both the local economy and the environment.  And fresher is always better!

Buffet arrangement created with dahlia, tuberose, green mist ammi, sedum, and greenery

Dahlia season is a great time of year.  The large white dahlia in the center of this arrangement is about the size of a salad plate.  Nothing beats a fresh, local bloom like this one!

While this was a fundraising and awards event for a non-profit organization, we are also seeing this natural style with a lot of green gain popularity in wedding florals.  What is your favorite style?
