The story of how asparagus can take you far! April 20, 2013

Green Centerpiece - Kristi Murphy photo Lauren Conrad blog

Recently, Kristi Murphy, of SaucyPants fame, requested a floral arrangement for their photo shoot of a St. Patrick’s Day beer-tasting for a Lauren Conrad blog post. Since they were working at The Farm at South Mountain, I incorporated kale, asparagus, and rosemary along with green bells of ireland, white anemone, and other green and white flowers.

I decided to also create a second arrangement for Your Life A to Z as our weekly delivery for the show, including the asparagus, rosemary, kale, and green and white flowers. It just so happened that Gabe from Il Tocco, was one of the guest chef’s that week.

Fast forward to mid-April, and the Culinary Festival preparations. Gabe decided that it was either create a centerpiece for Best of Fest himself, or to cook the steak.  He remembered our creative food-inspired floral arrangement, and called us. And so we had the honor of creating Cream, green and veggie centerpiecethe centerpieces for him for the festival. We used Sahara roses, stock, hydrangea, two kinds of kale, rosemary, and yes, the asparagus, even adding in rutabagas and parsnips!

Moral of the story – let asparagus take you there! Or: Be yourself, be creative, be passionate, and the people who love what you love will find you!

I am so grateful, encouraged – Thank you for listening!

Bells of Ireland are manipulated into swirls, and Green Hydrangea and it’s own foliage provide the base. Pussy Willows with suspended ‘bells’ provide graceful height.

Green Hydrangea and Green Anthos Mums make a splash in a beautiful glass vase with swirled colors.

And at Old Main at Asu a few weeks ago. Enjoy!
