Apple Love

DSC06772 apple love

My Southern Gentleman Husband and I were invited to dinner by our dear friends Dirk and Josine this weekend. I brought this meandering centerpiece, partially to honor Steve Jobs, but also because I know that Josine adores apples. The tulips are a nod to our hosts' Dutch roots and I chose acorns because Josine's maiden name means oak tree. The winter berries? Just because.

It was a wonderful evening catching up with each other over wine, a gourmet home-cooked meal, and thought-provoking conversation.  Thank you Dirk and Josine, we cherish your friendship.

This is absolutely beautiful, and truly a work of art. I have never seen anything quite like it. Really stunning!

You are an amazing friend to bring such magnificent creations. The art of flowers is not lost on you!

Ruth said...

You are the absolute best. It is a zen garden, a nod to autumn and to winter, and spring that follow. You added the winter berries because the arrangement needed them! Brilliant.

(Please do find something elegant to wear quick and meet me and Leo tomorrow at the Willow Ball. I would not be able to tell your kids' Leo play story as you can ...)

Oh I love your arrangement, just beautiful!

Dear Ruth,
I'm blushing at your praise. Thank you.

I can't believe I found something to wear in such a short period of time. It was all a bit hurried, but fun nevertheless.

OMG. No wonder you go to all those posh floral exhibitions, DB! You truly are something else.
