Doing bouquets for a party. Have fab pink Amaryllis. Suggestions for other flattering flowers to add to the mix? I'm going for lalapalooza.

Green Trick dianthus or big green mum comes to my mind- you'd need something else smaller/ lighter in scale.. I shouldn't even chime in, I never do arrangements.. but Green Trick are unusual.
Or dark green holly and white roses.
It may depend on what you find.

Thanks Sally. Had not heard of Green Trick dianthus before. Any idea what this flower is?

Budget? Theme of the party? Are these table arrangements or handheld bouquets? Do you have access to a wholesale florist supply or will you be paying retail? Sorry for too many questions. *Blush*

Hi Greene,
Nope, no "in" with florists so I'll be paying retail prices. Occasion is a New Year's Eve party. Flowers will not be part of the dining table setting and will likely just be in vases on side tables.
Planning to cobble together arrangements of pink Amaryllis, white roses and small light-green mums.
I'll send a snap tomorrow.
