Floral Arranging with Levi

  DSC_0311

One thing you can't live without: Well, after Jason I would have to say Scooter and then my favorite hoodie! Floral related, it would have to be white tulips! I just love them and they work with anything. They always put a smile on my face!

Best thing you learned while working in the florist shop: Always to have fun and think outside the box!

Where do you find inspiration: Everywhere I go and everything I see I get a different kind of inspiration. I do love historic neighborhoods and a good antique store! Oh and Tokyo!!

Dianthus, Roses and succulents

*Being the collector that he is, we had plenty of fun props to use for this shoot! Note the trophies above that belonged to Levi's great- grandmother.

How would you describe your personal style: Classic with a twist. Old and new combined in a casual way!

Above is my favorite arrangement of the day. Adding the succulents into this monochromatic arrangement really gave it a new depth and texture. Levi used an antique floral frog to help him create this arrangement, he always keeps an eye out for them at flea markets and antique stores (he also refuses to pay more than $3 for one!)

Beautiful Weller pottery, made in Levi's hometown of Zanesville, accompanied by Scooter's smiling face!

For this arrangement, Levi wanted to use jars that he collects (they are actually dried beef jars!). He wanted to show us that creating arrangements in little jars can be very versatile. Use them one way Friday night and rearrange them for Saturday night! Above is the arrangement presented linearly and then below we arranged them in a cluster, making it appear to be one massive arrangement.
