When Anne approached me to be involved with the Women of Forbes dinner party, I was honored and so excited. Her only request was that I use Black and White Anemones, my all time favorite flower! The dinner was intimate, set on a small yacht out of Marina Del Rey. I played with a blue, black, white and gray color palette to serve a nautical feel without being kitschy. I used berries, dusty miller, ranunculus and seeded eucalyptus for texture; each place setting was dressed with an anemone and a name tag. It was a beautiful night.
