One of my favorite things about entertaining (besides seeing friends) is flowers. The more color the better. Surprise, surprise!
Yesterday morning, I went to Pike Place Market to select just the right flowers for a little cocktail party I hosted last night. I truly love the process of strolling by every flower vendor to check out the selection before making my purchases.
The market was decked out in sunflowers, dahlias and zinnias yesterday and lots of color!
I couldn't wait to get home to "play" with my flowers! I brought home several bundles. I love re-arranging them, selecting the perfect display vessels (which aren't always vases) and scattering them around my house.
I had so much fun selecting these dahlias specifically for each of these vases.
And I love this sunflower zinnia combo.
One of my favorite "vases" is a Deruta Italian pitcher. It's great on my kitchen counter, and a bit unexpected.
I also love displaying blooms in glassybaby, alongside the above pitcher.
Even though I love color, I'm pretty taken with this white dahlia. Isn't it fabulous?!
What's your favorite thing about throwing a party?!
