Does she really do her own arrangements? I get asked this all the time. People see the beautiful flower arrangements on the set of Paula’s Food Network Shows and wonder if Paula really does those herself. I can tell you first hand, when it comes to dahlias…YES she does. The photos above were never intended to be a part of the photo shoot we were working on. The crew was set up to take a lovely photo of Paula and Michael on their back porch enjoying a glass of Lemonade and slice of Simply Delicious Strawberry Cake (the photo was for strawberry season after all). Paula walked in and saw all the precious dahlias there ready to be arranged and dug right in. Not only did she use the white hydrangeas and deep fuchsia dahlias we gathered, she also picked a few petunias from her hanging baskets and confederate jasmine vine from the back porch railing to use as filler. The result was so beautiful that Michelle White, Paula’s Brand Manager and Art Director, asked the photographer, Chia Chong, to snap away. So the next time you wonder “Did Paula actually make that?”, chances are she sure did!
