This is what kept my boss (Mel Day of Dogwood Tree Floral) and all his crew busy last weekend; a large wedding at Duke Chapel and reception at the Washington-Duke Inn.
Each centerpiece was made on a framework of plywood and dowels, all covered with fresh sheet moss. Each one had 8 sprays of phaelenopsis orchids, with green hydrangea, corkscrew willow and salal (lemon leaf). They were approximately 7-8 feet tall, and we did 19 of them, plus 2 smaller arrangements. It was a lot of hard work (although fun) and we are glad it is over!
