I hope you have a very Happy Easter.
This basket of flowers featuring white liliums, pink lisianthus, white chrysanthemums and thryptomene would look lovely in your own home or make an ideal gift for Easter.
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 is 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 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.
The pink lisianthus stems have been cut slightly shorter and positioned in between the liliums.
The chrysanthemums have then been placed in between the other flowers.
The thryptomene and foliage has been placed lightly between the flowers
This design has been explained briefly. In the Floristry Course measurements are given showing you how long to cut the stems and where to position them.
