This past weekend, the Frank Lloyd Wright Building Conservancy held their annual gala at the Pfister Hotel in Milwaukee. Waukesha Floral was privileged to provide floral arrangements for the tables which mimicked some of Mr. Wright’s famous designs; The Great Workroom at S.C. Johnson C., Taliesin, the Prairie Houses and Falling Water. Natural stone, grasses, sedum and and wild flowers were used throughout, as was in keeping with Mr. Wright’s philosophy of staying “always staying close to nature, it will never fail you”.
We received some nice comments from the coordinators of this event.
“ I couldn’t believe it when I walked into the room Saturday—it looked like you had really gone all out on the designs, they were really very special and every one of them went home with an eager gala attendee.”
“Your centerpieces were the most thoughtful and unusual that we have ever had. I made sure the arrangement inspired by the Great Workroom was on the SC Johnson table and they commented that it was very special.
Many others commented as well and our president made special mention of these unique arrangements and how much they were appreciated.”
This centerpiece was inspired by The Great Workroom at S.C. Johnson in Racine. The Baby Tut cypress has been used to replicate the soaring pillars of this innovative room, while the red sedum reminds us of the Cherokee Red flooring. Everyone should take a tour to see this fabulous facility, it’s amazing!
Taliesin in Spring Green was the inspiration for this design. Taliesin translates to “shining brow”, in which the structure was built on the edge of a hill with fertile farm fields below. This arrangement reminds us of those farm fields, and the flat rocks of the beauty of the Spring Green area.
