Ladies and Gentlemen, The Beatles! Or at least a floral arrangement inspired by them!

This past weekend, we had the pleasure of creating a Beatles themed floral arrangement for a private event held at the Weidner Center in Green Bay. The event was themed to coordinate to the concert that evening-the Green Bay Symphony performing Beatles tunes.

And we got to make a FLORAL GUITAR!

How rockin' is that?

This was Barbi's creation, from pretty much start to finish! Here are a few close shots to show the detail she put into it! She wanted the guitar to be as "accurate" as possible-so we did some internet research to make sure it resembled the early guitars the Beatles played. At least as closely as it could-given that we're talking about flowers here!

A big thank you to my Dad for donating the 45s used in the design. No, they weren't Beatles 45s. He was only willing to part with those that he didn't deem worthy of his collection. (So we covered them with patterned lime green paper!) A true patron of the arts, that man.

And the incredibly inventive ladies at Not By Bread Alone got to create some amazing Beatles themed nibbles...

Strawberry Fields Forever.

Even better when dipped in chocolate!

And a carved watermelon! How adorable is that?

There was even a yellow submarine holding cocktail sauce! Visit their facebook page to see some more great pics that I missed!

Yes, we really do love our job! I mean, how could you not when you get paid to do this!?
