Blue and yellow florals set the tone for joyful breakfast

Recently I had the opportunity to make the centerpieces for the Susie Steiner Community Impact Award event  with Hillsborough Community College  which was held at the George Steinbrenner Field in Tampa  on a beautiful September morning.

HCC’s colors are blue and gold so these hydrangeas and sunflowers fit the bill, especially against the backdrop of the blue tablecloths at the Events pavilion for the NY Yankees.

Guest speaker Richard Gonzmart is owner of Columbia Restaurant Group, a local landmark in seven Florida cities from St. Augustine to Sarasota, and Ulele, a newer restaurant which is a stellar favorite of all who visit.

As an added bonus, the Yankees were practicing on the field just outside during the luncheon. It was a great morning and I was honored to be a part of it.
