For a dinner at Wave Hill, I was asked to design some table arrangements from materials gathered from around the property.
My co-workers, Molly and Gelene assisted me in gathering, cleaning and preparing the branches and twigs as well as putting the arrangements together.
Since it was just after a hard freeze, there was nothing left in flower. Everything we used had either colorful foliage, winter berries or grass plumes.
These gorgeous, bright purple berries came from a bush aptly called Beautyberry (Callicarpa sp.)
We all enjoyed the process and everyone seemed very happy with how festive and seasonal they looked.
