Green Feast

I was very honored to have gotten the opportunity to do the flowers for the Green Feast event last Sunday at the Ecology Center in San Juan Capistrano. The event's  200 guests were seated at a 192 ft. table in between the farm's fields! Sumptuous meals were served community-style while the local producers shared brief stories of their fresh-caught seafood, seasonal vegetables, and free range meats. What a spectacular and intimate evening all in celebration of local food! 
For the flowers, the theme I decided on was "wildly elegant," incorporating wildflowers in mason jars with silk black ribbon and twine to tie the windswept look of flowers into rather graceful centerpieces. Oh the joy in using recycled jars and bottles combined with re-potted angelonias to set the tone! See more pictures here*
