Designing complementary combinations of food and beverage is a conventional practice, but pairing can extend to matching things such as wine and flowers too. For avid hosts, attentive gift givers and those who simply enjoy curating their lives, there is an opportunity here to appeal to an expanded set of senses.

Becky De Oliveira from Blush and Bloom offers some insightful tips about how to make your pinot grigio complement a beautiful bouquet of fresh florals. The most obvious first consideration is aesthetic: choosing an assortment of pretty petals that match your desired wine label, in terms of color and even the subtleties of texture.

Beyond that, scent is extremely important, especially if the stems will be arranged in a vase on the table. A delicately designed multisensory experience is enhanced when you take the flavors of your dinner party dishes into account as well.
