DESIGN COUNCIL EXCLUSIVE “My inspiration was the color palette, how the floral colors complement each other and the vase,” says Phil DeVito, describing his approach to designing this magnificent botanical celebration. A floral designer at 1-800-Flowers in Carle Place, New York, he chose carnations and Matsumoto aster, both in lavender, along with hot pink Matsumoto aster, purple dianthus, bupleurum and statice to craft a truly original arrangement. “Purple is a very popular color right now,” continues Phil, making this on-trend floral creation ideal for many different gifting opportunities.
