Flowers provide the finishing touch to any occasion.
This setting would be lovely for an outdoor wedding or event.
Lizianthus are beautiful flowers that come in shades of purple, mauve, pink and white.
They resemble a rose with long pointed buds and they are fairly long lasting.
A mauve silk drape is used as a backdrop in a shade that compliments the flowers.
A stone look urn is used as a base.
The bottom of the urn has been filled almost to the top with crumpled paper.
A piece of plastic has been placed on top of the paper (a garbage bag will do.)
A full block of florist foam has been soaked in water for several minutes and then placed on top of the paper.
The foam needs to sit at least 5cm higher than the edge of the container so the side stems can be inserted into the foam
Any spaces around the foam can be filled in with other soaked offcuts of foam or crumpled paper.
The foliage (ivy) has been cut to the desired length and inserted around the edges to extend downwards.
The lizianthus stems have been cut to the desired length – about one and a half the height of the container and inserted in the centre and then around having each round slightly lower.
The shape should be rounded across the top when viewed side on.
A few buds have been inserted in the top of the arrangement.
The flowers should be lightly sprayed with water and the foam topped up each day.
