Irene's 2nd arrangement

The second arrangement of the evening was "New York". A towering arrangement of gold twigs atop a tall cream container with fern at the base formed the building blocks for Irene's depiction of the Empire State Building. Beautiful tall orangy gold roses were inserted high into the design, white carnations were set lower down and the "observation deck" was depicted by yellow chrysanthemums and orange gerbera set amongst the ferns. Whilst completing the arrangement Irene entertained us with the story of her trip to New York when she surprised her daughter who was singing with a choir at Carnegie Hall and had not expected to see her there.
