We were! We love flowers!
Tangerine was Pantone’s 2012 Colour of the Year, but it made another big appearance a few days ago at President Obama’s 2013 Inauguration. At the Inaugural Luncheon on January 21, 2013, bright, orange flower centerpieces decorated the tables. Even though tangerine was last year’s colour, the bright colour was perfect for the occasion, as President Obama was sworn for his second term. Orange flowers are a symbol of energy, enthusiasm, confidence and passion.
Jack Lucky Floral Design of Alexandria, Virgina designed the centerpieces. Knowing that the President and the First Lady likes contemporary and vibrant designs, they created beautiful vibrant orange flower arrangements, which featured apricot “Free Spirit” roses and orange ranunculus blooms.
Interestingly, the florist designed the arrangements to die right after the lunch. The beautiful flowers were meant to be displayed in full bloom, at its fullest glory. Enjoy them while they last!
