San Francisco Gate Features Our Tips On Holiday Floral Displays

The San Francisco Chronicle and featured Bloomingayles secrets to long lasting holiday floral arrangements in the Home & Garden section on Sunday, December 19, 2010.  The editor included a beautiful image of a monochromatic design of green figs on branches from my website taken by the amazing photographer Leslie Sophia Lindell as well!  I enjoyed working on the article with Jeannie Matteucci, a SF Bay Area-based freelance writer who covers style, culture and home design for cover stories for SF Chronicle Home & Garden and a variety of top publications.  I am looking forward to collaborating with Jeannie on more design related articles in 2011!  Follow the link above for the full write up.

And for my faithful readers, here is a very brief summary of what I shared:

1.  Use a grouping of vases with a small number of flowers in each to create a modern and dramatic look.

2.  Go monochromatic for an elegant display.

3.  Stay seasonal in your choices!
