Not all flowers pair well with orchids. I enjoy mixing orchids with roses because I think it helps to make the rose not so traditional. And, I also think of both of them as quite luxurious. This past week, I provided flowers for a 40th wedding anniversary dinner party at Victoria's Union Club. Ruby red is the chosen color for 40th wedding anniversaries and it turned out it was very suiting to the interior also. The greenery reminds me of mini palm fronds, and why not, as summer has finally arrived here in the "garden city".
