I love creating out-of-the-box arrangements! There are few events where we can get enough creative freedom to try new materials and ideas. We really don't get a chance to do that for weddings, which is understandable. Brides usually have a pretty clear idea of what they want, especially through the boom of Pinterest
. So we were so excited when we got a call from the Coalition for Clean Air! Their theme was Formula One since Jay Leno was being awarded that night and it was held at the Peterson Auto Museum
. They loved the idea of working with an eco-friendly florist
and our funky style.
Using the Formula One theme and to assure environmentally-friendly arrangements, we suggested using recycled car parts as the vases. They loved the idea - great for us!
So off to the junkyard, aka car cemetery, we went! We managed to document our adventure.
