Union League Club, New York, New York

by Jane

Jane Guerin, flowers provided the centerpieces for the Board Meeting of the American Liver Foundation. The meeting was held at the Union League Club in New York. I actually jumped at the chance to do these flowers because it meant I could go the the Flower Market in NYC where the flowers will truly knock your socks off!!!! I went to the market early, but not early enough. Some of the most unusual flowers were either gone or almost gone. Even so, I found the most gorgeous, fresh, hard to find flowers. I was in great company, too. I was surrounded by some of the most well-known event planners buying flowers and props for events. It was fascinating to watch them work and listen to the details about their events. I even ran into Charlotte Moss, who I proceeded to introduce myself to. We chatted a bit about the availablility of great and unusual flowers at their peak!!!!! The Union League Club is all gorgeous dark walnut panelling and marble and the carpeting and draperies are blue and yellow/gold. I used blue and yellow flowers with a splash of orange.
