I always think of purple as the colour for my oldest friend Sal.
These flowers were for a party to celebrate some auspicious numbers:
Ten years of marriage
One hundred years combined age (Sal, her husband, their kids)
It was a lovely party.
I thought the wicker baskets worked really well to transport the flowers. I wish florists would put more pictures of the technicalities on their blogs so I can learn about such things! Or maybe they enlist their loved ones to provide human padding for flowers en route as well?
