Following up on MD's rather snooty quote in my last post, here's an example of how one can arrange "those horrid carnations" in such a way that they don't look like an uglified, nasty FTD mess of carnations, baby's breath, daisies, and freesia:
Boy made this frothy arrangement yesterday evening with white hydrangea and carnations bought at the corner deli. Yes, Dear Reader, you read that correctly—not all of our flowers come from Plaza Flowers! I don't think he paid more than $22 dollars for them. Boy arranged the hydrangea and carnations in a simple, rectangular modern glass vase. I'm showing the bouquet sitting on a side table in our city apartment.
It really is rather divine to be so fortunate as I to live with a fancy Manhattan decorator—lovely flower arrangements such as these appear out of nowhere, just like that!
So chic, no?
By the way, we're taking a break from Darlington House this weekend to take in some of the current shows and exhibitions in New York. Reggie needs a dose of city living for a change . . .
More on that to follow, Dear Reader!
