GRACIOUS ACCENTS

Continued from Page 44

The arrangement is delivered to the
home and inserted into the crystal con-
tainer. The designers know the decor
of regular customers' houses and the
flowers and colors are chosen to best
set it off.
Florists are using more candles now
than in the past, and some carry large,
hand-dipped candles that will burn for
up to 15 hours.
Another trend: Florists are also us-
ing more dried materials like branches
and pods. Occasionally, they will
sprinkle glitter on the pods for a festive
touch.
Other floral designers have been us-
ing more wicker baskets, colored
ceramic containers and flat design
trays rather than glass containers.
High-style arrangements of linear
design are popular. These arrange-
ments might include exotic flowers like
Bird-of-Paradise, orchids or proteas as
well as flowers from Holland like
gerberas.
Indeed, this may be the year for
fruits and vegetables, which are being
used for everything from casual brun-
ches to elegant dinner parties.
For a brunch held outdoors, Jack
Smith likes the look of natural terra cot-
ta pots. He suggests filling them with
fresh asparagus spears in bunches,
fresh broccoli, carrots and squashes.
You can add flowers from the florist
shop or your own garden.

One talented floral designer recently
made the following arrangement for a
customer, and it was a big hit. He fill-
ed a terra cotta tray with asparagus
spears in bunches, broccoli and car-
rots. To this he added fresh marigolds,
cut geranium blossoms and daisies,
along with springeri and ivy for greens.
For an evening party held outdoors,
consider using several three-inch terra
cotta pots. Drape foliage, like galax
leaves tied with raffia, around the pot
but let some of the pot show through.
Place aluminum foil in the bottom of
the pot, then insert a votive candle.

For outdoor entertaining in the fall,
you can use mums, squashes and
other seasonal vegetables. Add a
touch of fall leaves. Work in wheat and
cattails.
Indoors, you can utilize fruit for more
formal entertaining. Smith suggests
bunches of grapes, citrus fruits like
limes and lemons, or plums. Check the
fruit market to see what's available Li
