With all of the record high temps we had last week, our heads were stuck in the tropics and the feeling certainly carried over into this week’s recipe!

This week’s recipe used two different assorted tropical boxes; the Hawaiian topical mix box, 36025, which is 25 stems of assorted tropical flowers and we also utilized the samba magic assorted box, 12474. To accent the hefty heliconia and the enticing beehive ginger, yellow James Storie orchids, 10442, were incorporated to extend the design in a lateral motion.

To bulk out the design and give it some weight orange Free Spirit roses, 51090, mixed with yellow yarrow, 21609, and green dianthus, 37685, polished off the design. To add a little more whimsy; yellow solidago, 20591, extended the bright yellow coloration from the depths of the arrangement to the tips of the design aiding in providing balance.
