Zinnia Profusion Fire
Flowers are a natural for an outdoor party. Tutera recommends using plants rather than cut flowers, since you can keep them for yourself after the party is over. Grab a flat or two of zinnias in brilliant orange hues, which are colorful, and work as a transition color into fall. Transplant the flowers into small pots and place them around the pool (with the candles) and on tables.
A must-have for summertime - Stick these into your water bottle (re-usable I hope!) so you can stay cool while on the road.
I'd rather have a low maintenance cactus than fresh cut flowers, but a bouquet of Cymbidium Garnet Orchids from the Vera Wang Collection certainly wouldn't go unappreciated in the Delicious household.
