Topiary Tree #9
Some of our earlier topiary trees were rather subtle in terms of color.
This one certainly makes a rather bold statement.
Lots of red carnations contrasting strongly with yellow button poms and blue statice provide a bright, and strong color statement in a triadic color harmony.
This bright design would work well in most rooms with a predominately yellow, red or blue theme. It would be ideal for a dark area and it certainly would add a touch of class to a child's party.
Although we have stylized this design with live materials, a substitution of silk or dried contents could make this an everlasting piece (eg. use golden yarrow in place of the button poms, etc.)
