These two are going to the top of my inspiration file for my wedding centerpieces. All the hydrenga is affordable and he really makes use of the big ticket flowers he includes. Plus, I love all the varying textures and heights and the use of greenery and branches.
Ken also does really great things with presentation. I would never have thought to use eggs as mini vases! (Plus, my soft spot for ranunculus...) And I've always loved the idea of fruit as decoration, I tend to find it done so that it doesn't look so great, and really, the big value of doing something for cheap is only when it doesn't look cheap. Let's just say, this does not look cheap.
As usual, I am a sucker for surprising uses of baby's breath. No exception here. And I love the ornaments in the vases. I love glass vases, but not always the look of the stems, so ornaments in a wide vase is such a cool way to conceal them! This could be really easily adapted to be less Christmassy, I would think.
All this and so much more in Ken Marten's flickr stream.
