Banchet Jaigla, whose clients include Diane von Furstenberg and HBO, created an unexpected, exotic holiday arrangement that would work in a guest bedroom as well as in a hallway or on a dining table or sideboard. Inspired by her childhood in Thailand, it features a simple, tightly edited grouping of bold, colorful, graphic elements. The inside of the glass vase is wallpapered with foliage to hide the arrangement’s stems.
Materials include: an Anthurium clarinervium leaf, red ‘Indian Summer’ calla lilies, green Cymbidium orchids, Mokara Red Azacoff orchids, white Dutch hydrangea, and aspidistra leaves.
SUBSTITUTIONS: The arrangement is based on making a big statement, not intricacy. Banchet suggests alternates of ‘Green Goddess’ calla lilies for the green orchids, white roses or tulips for the hydrangea, red roses for the red callas, red hypericum berries for the Mokara orchids, Monstera for the Anthurium clarinervium leaf.
