Flowers For Shabbos:Go Bold with COLOR!

Flowers for Shabbos:  Go Bold with Color!


Hey KS Fans,

I am so excited and wanted to really thank you all for the great response to the first of my flowers series post I put up last week.

My KS fans really rock and are so creative – I am L-O-V-ing it! (keep on sending in those Shabbos flower pics please!)


So for this week’s post…

When I see flowers, I see  COLOR.

Colors that are Bright, Vibrant, & Gorgeously Hued – I love putting together flowers that contrast in colors or bring big POPs of dazzling vivid color.

Bright Pink & Orange  Clash? – Not in my flower world.


Contrasting Orange & Pinks with Purples & Tinges of Blue

Many times, colors that traditionally are thought to be too intense and garish – when blended together in a stunning flower arrangement, instantly brings a dramatic and strikingly spectacular centerpiece to any room or table .

Purples & Reds with Blue & Orange - Stunning Tables

Last week I made some centerpieces for my cousin Eli K’s Bar Mitzvah.

My Aunt has learned that if she leaves the flower arrangements up to me

Most likely I will not go soft and monochromatic – but big POPs of Vibrant Color.

Her table cloths were these exquisite lilac – I decided to modernize it and add these beautiful fun Black & White vases I found in Marshals 6 years ago. Add to them some Antique Deep Green Hydrangeas with a purple tint and some hot pink roses  – This arrangement’s colors made that Lilac table cloth just come alive.

For the smaller white flower vases that were used in clusters as a centerpiece, I found these great flour & sugar jars with a black rubber band in Marshals for $4.99, that I just turned inside out so the words like biscuit were hidden.





Here’s to A Shabbos that is Beautiful & Full of COLOR!!

:) Sarah
