The ocean provides endless inspiration for us here in Hawaii, and finding interesting ways to incorporate elements of the sea into a chic beach theme always poses a challenge. In our Winter/Spring 2012 issue, five of our top floral designers shared their ocean-inspired designs in these brilliant seascape bouquets photographed by Frank Amodo. In the first bouquet, Honolulu florist Yvonne Chapman of Yvonne Design paired dainty pink Yves Piaget garden roses with ranunculuses adorned with small shells.
