Beauty in Bloom at the Milwaukee Art Museum – Part 2
It’s been a while since my last post where I promised I would share more fabulous pieces from Milawukee Art Museum’s Beauty in Bloom. I happy to say that day has arrived! As I mentioned, I really adore the third place entry designed by Jaimer’s Floral, but there were many other great designs on display as well.
This color blocked arrangement was named Honorable Mention. It was designed by Emily Neubauer, Erika Herman, and Alex Covert of Belle Fiori LTD. I love how they arranged the galax leaves to look like kale; what an interesting technique!
The way the driftwood balances on it’s two “feet” is really fantastic!
This lovely bold design uses some great flowers — I’m a huge fan of the yellow eremurus
This bold yellow and black piece was designed by Denise Gehrke, AIFD of Waukesha Floral and Greenhouse. Denise is a fabulously talented designer who I have had the great pleasure of working with on several occasions. She is a truly talented artist who is passionate about floral design, and a wonderful person to boot!
All in all I had a wonderful time at Beauty in Bloom despite the fact that the art galleries were not available for perusing. I would have loved to have made the fashion show on Saturday night; I heard the designs were extraordinary. Perhaps the museum will add a floral fashion show to the annual event next year…one can hope!
