I sincerely hope all the wonderful mothers have a lovely Mother’s Day.
Flowers are traditionally given for Mother’s Day and it is a very busy time for florists.
This flower arrangement features liliums, orchids and carnations.
A tall container is used as a base.
A large block of foam is soaked with water, placed in a plastic florist bowl and secured in place with a plastic clip on guard on top of the tall container.
One of the rules in flower arranging is for good balance the arrangement should be at least one and a half times the height of the container but you can always go higher.
The foliage is removed from the bottom of the stems.
The tall leaves are positioned at the back and foliage is placed around the edges of the foam to curve downwards.
The flowers are arranged in groups for the most impact.
Starting at the top one group of flower is positioned at a time having the liliums in the centre out a bit further as they are the feature flowers.
The twisted willow is placed at the back to give extra height.
This design has been explained briefly. In the Floristry Course there is a step- by-step floristry manual and an online video for each practical lesson. You will learn how to make up each design starting from the very beginning and follow each step so your designs will have that professional look.
