Proteas, Tulips and Lilies

I hope you enjoyed the Christmas break and are looking forward to the New Year.

We usually make goals at the beginning of the year and by putting them into action you can make it a very successful year for you.

I love working with flowers – with all the wonderful varieties of flowers that are available.

When you are making up a design you can combine different flowers and foliage together for a completely different look.

I am sure you will enjoy floristry also – whether it is for an exciting career, working from home or to create flower arrangements for family and friends.

It’s easy when you know the basic principles of flower arranging.

There are a few rules that you need to follow – these include choosing flowers that go well together, proportion, balance, colour co-ordination and a design to suit the surroundings.

This is a modern floral design. The materials used are proteas, tulips, calla lilies and foliage. All white flowers have been used.

A round vase has been used as a base. Fill it with water.

The foliage stems have been cut to the desired length and inserted them in the container fanning them out to the sides.

Each flower stem has been cut to the desired length. The height of the arrangement should be at least one and a half times the height of the container but you can always go higher.

The smallest protea has been placed in the top and the large open protea is the focal flower and has been placed at the bottom.

The tulips have been placed in the right side and the calla lilies in the left side of the foam.

Two long leaves have been placed at the back.

This design is briefly explained. In the course you are given step-by-step measurements on how long to cut each stem and exactly where to position each one in the design.

If you have not already enrolled in the Floristry Course we would love to have you join us.

Make it YOUR YEAR where you learn how to create beautiful floral designs the professional way.

Until next time – have a great week
