Take it from the Parisians: Don’t overdo it. “There’s an art to arranging,” says Shelly Huynh of Orchid Dynasty, who just returned from Paris, “but I’m not doing anything over-manipulative.” Huynh’s approach is simple, yet yields bouquet wow factor. She heads to her 9th & 9th neighborhood greenhouse to find the stars of her bouquet—lime green phalaenopsis orchids. “When going monochromatic, it’s good to have something darker for depth. A transition color like the green phalaenopisis with its white lip and yellow center jumps and blends the colors together.” Blue Star fern and hand fern partner with traditional European garden blooms, including peonies, daffodils, French tulips, ranunculi, hellabores, bearded iris, viburnum and garden spray roses.
