Dry January? The Putnams have a use for those empty cocktail cups
Michael and Darroch Putnam create an exquisite table display perfect for a healthier start to 2021
With bars closed in many parts of the world, January 2021 might be among the easiest months to give up alcohol. Up for the challenge? You can still treat yourself in other ways, and make use of those recently drained drinking vessels.
In a new video, the Phaidon authors and pioneering flower power couple, Michael and Darroch Putnam, put together a beautiful, bright table arrangement, inside an empty cocktail cup.
It might be a small design, but one that captures perfectly the broad, wide-reaching skills and talents of the Putnams, whose starry client list includes Beyoncé, Martha Stewart and Gwyneth Paltrow
The orange, white and pink pigment selections also capture the essence of their new book, Flower Color Theory, a colour-theory guide to floral arrangements.
This new title features 175 arrangements that show myriad ways to combine flowers of different hues, all organised around different chromatic principles. Intrigued? Then rinse out that cocktail cup, and order a copy of the new book here.
