The charming and entertaining Shane Connolly treated his audience to an incredible demonstration. After hand selecting containers from the Nashville Antiques & Garden Show, Shane chose the floral ingredients for the dozen arrangements he created. He wowed the audience with both extravagant and simple renditions of floral beauty.

The sheer scale of some of the arrangements was extraordinary!

This was a favorite of mine.. I wondered what in the world he was going to do with that huge rusted bowl?? He tucked in gorgeous bunches of daffodils and added moss. Shane is a firm believer in working in harmony with the planet. He tries to use seasonal flowers, and doesn't use oasis if at all possible!

Loved this Valentine-inspired arrangement with pinks, purples and reds...

The turquoise bottles were a brilliant choice!

Another stunning pairing...

I have grown quite fond of Shane's organic approach to floral design. You may remember him as the floral designer for Will and Kate's wedding. Not overdone, simple and elegant, Kate's bridal bouquet was filled with lily-of-the-valley, symbolizing a return to happiness. White hyacinths for constancy, and Sweet William for gallantry (and of course the groom!) were also included. The myrtle was taken from a plant grown from the myrtle used in The Queen's wedding bouquet of 1947.
