Floraspiration, Week 20: Bal du Bois Fleurs

     These pictures hardly due justice to the stunning flowers from Friday night’s 2012 Bal du Bois at The Country Club of Virginia.  As always the floral designs took my breath away, but I do think that this was my favorite Bal yet.  I apologize for the terrible pictures via my iPhone sans flash, but I think that you can still get a bit of the flavor from this memorable affair.

Each of the Sponsors’ bouquets was composed of pink peonies and mini fushia calla lilies.

After the “Figure”, a Sponsor’s shoes take a rest at her table.

Nothing was overlooked, not even the tent poles which were decorated with peonies, stargazer lilies, roses and orchids.

Main ballroom cocktail tables each had their own pagoda decked out in orchids with peony accents.

     Despite the poor quality of the photos, you should be able to get a glimpse of how gorgeously glamorous this Bal was. The overall beautifully conceived design absolutely contributed to the marvelous atmosphere present throughout the evening despite the threatening weather.  The Junior Board of Sheltering Arms Physical Rehabilitation Hospital truly created a magical night that the Sponsors will never forget.
