no - am decorating a sales office for a show and want the flowers to match our logo

I can't get you any images as i'm at work but Asters have very vibrant colours and last for ages, lillies come in pinks and creams, and both are pretty common this time of year.

lol January ??? :roll: most flowers start to bloom in spring so you are going to pay over the odds for flowers in January and you might be limited.

it depends on what sort of venue but if you were near a flower market then you can get cheap single of orchids and cut of each single flower with enough stem left to fit in oasis and makes a nicetable arrangement you can add floristry ribbon or stiff wired ribbons to add to effect and greenery cheap alternatives eith trad or modern
first pop to yr local book store take photos on yr mob to save expense on buying the book or yr local library for ideas look under arts and crafts
Good Luck
