“It was such a treat for all of us to come together and collaboratively host Laura Hooper’s calligraphy workshop in Richmond, Virginia. We all decided we wanted to do something fun with a vibrant color palette to offset the beautifully stark white space of the venue, Paisley & Jade. I wanted the flowers to be cheerful, and you just can’t go wrong with zinnias and ranunculus. Pairing all the fresh flowers with the giant paper flowers—designed by Tart Event Co.—provided a bright and whimsical atmosphere to welcome the guests. Nearly three feet in diameter, the enormous poppies, roses and anemones added an infusion of whimsy to the airy space.” – Janie
