Amy's Thoughts: All I want to do is sip that rosé and geek out with the floral designer who created it by saying things like "I love how you nestled that downward pointing Amnesia rose!" or "Girl, they way you clustered dem cream spray roses all nice-like got me all fired up!". Then, instead of being weirded out, she'd see that we should be besties. Like real friends. The kind that holds your hand while you're getting your Botox injectables.
But seriously, she NAILED the composition and color transition from deep burgundy to cream by throwing in the mauve roses. Why does this matter? Without color gradients, it's easy to get the 'soccer ball' look by being too contrasty.
