To help celebrate the American Cancer Society's 26th annual Dream Ball, Nordstrom's asked Geoff to design and plant a garden of paper flowers at Cipriani on east 42nd st. The main sculpture we produced was a giant 12 foot arch comprised of hundreds of paper flowers in various hues of pink. Also tapping into NY's Fashion Week, the arch also incorporated a welcoming hostess, dressed to the nines in an extravagant paper gown.

A closer look at Madame's cascading gown.

Here's a look at the paper flowers close up during production.
For the table decor, this time the paper flowers serves as a simple backdrop for the real floral centerpiece which included silver and gray paper leaves.

As a final touch, pink gelled uplighting illuminates the arch and surrounding architecture.
