He makes extraordinary appear simple, yet always with a fabulous, fun and often over-the-top flair. From Macon to Atlanta and beyond, Canaan is known for his gorgeous tablescapes, over-the-top mantels, and breathtaking bridal bouquets.
I would use sago palms, red ginger, birds of paradise, palm leaves, and king protea in the Evolution Vase. Pulling this floral palette together would create a beautiful tropical arrangement, which would contrast well with this dark container.
The Trophy Urn is a product that I absolutely love. I have been using this at weddings for a while now and it’s been known to turn heads! I always fill it with over the top branches and florals.
I love using the Astro with a collection of hydrangeas, spray roses, O’Hara roses, lilies, and some ferns. This is a great centerpiece for bistro tables or registration tables at parties and other events.
The Giselle is such a great container – I love to fill with peonies or tulips. The bottleneck opening allows for a large, overhanging arrangement.
I love to place the Newport Planter on a farm table because it’s low and people can still see one another at dinner. I would use flowers like hydrangeas, roses, tulips, and lilies. A colorful arrangement or a simple green and white composition works well here depending on your preferred palette.
