Stephanotis Dream

In school Thursday there was a donation from a local grower of several full boxes of pristine, white, plump Stephanotis. Our class was just before Spring break therefore we had the privilege of taking home a box each of the fragrant and pricey flower. Martha Stewart had an all Stephanotis wreath in her Weddings magazine five years ago and the photo claimed it was beautiful but a budget "splurge"! This was truly a fortune in flowers given to me.
Also that night Michael Daigian stopped by to show us some of his most popular bridal bouquets. It was a lesson I'll never forget. He is a friendly and calm personwho had the entire room enchanted by his presence.
It was a real treat to both learn from a master and have the hundreds of Stephanotis to work with at my studio. You wouldn't believe the aroma of these blooms!This is the inspiration board that I came up with for the week.
Enjoy the Stephanotis Dream!
