I hope you have a very Happy Easter. This basket of flowers featuring white liliums, pink lizianthus, white ranunculus and thryptomene would look lovely in your own home or make an ideal gift for Easter.
For this design a white wicker basket has been used a base.
Florist foam has been soaked in water for several minutes and placed in a plastic florist bowl and the foam secured in place with a clip on guard.
The basket has been filled three quarters of the way with crumpled paper and the bowl placed on top. Pieces of crumpled paper has been placed around the container to hold it in place.
It is important the top of the foam sits at least 5cm above the edge of the basket so the side stems can be inserted into the sides of the foam.
The foliage has been cut to the desired length and inserted into the foam around the edges to extend down.
It is easier to position one type of flowers first then move onto the next type.
The pink lisianthus stems have been cut to the desired length and positioned in the foam.
The white ranunculus have been cut to the desired length and positioned in the foam.
The thryptomene and foliage has been placed lightly between the flowers
The liliums are the feature flowers – the stems have cut to the desired length and inserted into the foam leaving a space between each one. These flowers should extend out slightly more than the other flowers.
This design has been explained briefly. In the Floristry Course each lesson is explained in detail.
