Flower Arrangement Featuring Strelitzia, Roses and Orchids

I would like to show you an arrangement where the flowers are positioned with good spacing between them so each one is shown off to its full advantage.

This is an important part of floristry.  In the florist course you will learn this and other rules so your designs will be well balanced.

The materials used in this design are two orange strelitzias, (bird of paradise) roses, mauve orchids, happy plant, ti leaves and camellia leaves.

The flowers are arranged in a low basket. Florist foam has been soaked in water for several minutes, placed in a plastic florist bowl and positioned in the basket.

The flowers have been cut to the desired length. Two strelitzias have been placed in the back to give the height.

The happy plant is placed in front. (In Asia the happy plant symbolizes good fortune and is often used in floral designs).

The roses have been positioned lower down in groups and the orchids have been placed in between.

The ti leaves have been folded back to form loops, wired with 22 gauge florist wire using double leg method and inserted around the edges of the arrangement. Camellia leaves are used to fill in the centre of the foam and around the edges between the loops.

This floral design is briefly explained.

In the Florist Course, each lesson is explained in detail on how long to cut each stem and exactly where to position each one in a design.

If you have not already enrolled in the course I would like to extend a personal invitation to you.
