The Winter Garden, Boston

Had the opportunity to make some large arrangements for the ceremony setting
in the Winter Garden in the Back Bay.  The large arrangements are just over
nine feet tall.  The large wall fountain on the back wall spilled into the pool located just behind the flowers.

A great autumn selection which included  kale, roses, craspedia, green calla lilies and orchids.

One of the best aisles we have done!  Beautiful cylinder vases of  curly willow, hydrangea,
vandella roses and hypericum berries. The small bowls of flowers consisted of hydrangea, hanging amaranthus, roses and hypericum. The bride, Jill, found these metal hangers that worked great on the blue stone patio.

Rented grass waiting for the place cards to be added.
Alice from the Bean Counter made these great looking pies and a wonderful white pumpkin cake!
Absolutely beautiful!
