Valentine wine and chocolate weekend

Valentine wine and chocolate was February 11th and 12th. The theme that Van Ruiten winery chose was Viva Las Vegas! With this theme in mind I decided to make something very large in scale that would exude a "wow" factor when people walked in. I chose to use a 15 ft. manzanita tree and paint it glossy black and then mount it on the top of a wine barrel. Then I packed the base of the tree with flowers( white hydrangea, 50 cm red freedom roses, 60 cm white roses, protea, black posey calla lilies, purple aranda orchids, small and large green cymbidium orchids) and a variety of succulents and rolled banana leaves.
The top of the tree featured hung crystals in a variety of sizes with red roses and green cymbidium orchids hanging from them. I finished with it off with very ornate black and crystal hanging candle holders! I hope you enjoy!
