Floral Design Class

 

Design style; mass arrangement

Technique used; armature and grouping

 

Using aluminum wire we made a fun armature to hold our flowers. Bright colored ranunculus and cymbidium orchids were the favorite of the night, by grouping the flowers it increases the visual appearance and also makes the design look interesting.

 

If you also like these types of flowers and want to try a design like this here are a few tips! Take the aluminum wire and fold it in your hand about eight times, take the two ends and bind it about three inches up. place the bound end in the vase, then you can bend the folds down to create the armature.  Choose four types of flowers including the hydrangea and filler. start by cutting the hydrangea short enough that they take up the mass of the vase. Then add the your remaining flowers on opposite sides. finish with the filler or an accent flower.

As always all flowers and supplies are available here at Studio Flora or check out a local florist in your area. 

Have fun!
