The first thing we did when we got to Telluride was walk around and scope out the amazing wild "greenery" to cut for the rehearsal dinner flowers. The weather was completely perfect- warm and clear, and the workspace was a backyard table next to a stream, under the aspens. I had some of the flowers fed-exed over from my supplier in San Francisco, some we clipped, and we picked up some from a local farmer in Dunton who luckily had some late season dahlias, cosmos, and herbs. Each place setting got a personal bud vase which were moved to the center of the table when food arrived. We wanted the flowers for this dinner to be really different from the soft golden celebration for the next night so we chose a selection of darker colors, berries, feathers, and spiky textures. I think it snowed the week after we were there- the force was with us.
