Vibrant and bold, this arrangement is a tribute to the tropical beauty artist Frida Kahlo surrounded herself with in her work and in her home. Kahlo frequently painted her iconic self-portraits with flower crowns crafted from the bright blooms of her native Mexico. Still life paintings of fruit, often featuring melons, were another favorite subject of the artist. Roses, zinnias, gladiolas, ranunculus, and peonies—in cantaloupe and watermelon hues—are a perfect match for the sultry heat of August.
