INTERVIEW: Suzanna Dulin, Owner, Flora, Chicago 

01 The Aesthetic:
Flora’s aesthetics use unusual, interesting plants and flowers to create organic, natural and beautiful arrangements.

02 The Thanksgiving Arrangement:
The flower combination is as follows: Ti leaf wrapped vases with antique purple hydrangea, amnesia roses, orange football mums, white kale, and accents of purple trachelium.

03 The Inspiration:
Our inspiration was the antique hydrangea.  There is a harvest, fall feel to this beautiful flower and we thought it would make for a beautiful table arrangement.

04 The Holiday:
I do entertain and I love to use what is seasonal and fresh.  Sometimes just taking a bunch of the same flower and placing it in a simple glass vase is what I enjoy.  A table with a runner of simple vases and clusters of massed flowers has a great impact.
