A Floral Tribute to the Toledo Museum of Art

I hope everyone had a chance to make it out to the Toledo Botanical Gardens for the Art Festival last weekend. We could not have asked for a better weekend!  My school, The Natural Science Technology Center was on hand to provide parking and I could not believe the turn out!

The Garden Club Forum or the Toledo District asked Beautiful Blooms by Jen to create a Floral Tribute to the Toledo Museum of Art and we chose the Glass Pavilion.  Here was our design that was on display in the Conference Center. We hope you had a chance to check it out!

The whole thing : )

The fire piece features an arrangement of carnations, miniature gerbera daisies, birds of paradise, freesia and miniature carnations.  It is meant to represent the fire that molds the lump glass into an outstanding piece of artwork meant to capture and reflect light.

The water piece features an arrangement of carnations, luna carnations, blue delphinium, green trichelium, purple limonium and miniature carnations.  The soothing cool tone colors and the splash or iridescence are meant to represent the water used to cool and set the final glass shape.

Meghan and her mom made these at the Toledo Botanical Gardens!
