Christine de Beer - effortless floral craftsman
and to share with your Flower Friends on your birthday?
This was my Mud!!! Floral Art Demonstration at the Rondebosch Flower Club.
"Anyone who thinks that sunshine is pure happiness has never danced in the rain"
Mud Pies (of the edible, 100% dirt free variety).
Because it was my birthday I wanted to give the audience each a slice of birthday cake to celebrate with me. For obvious reasons I settled on dark chocolate Mud Pies.
I tied my birthday Mud pie baskets and serviettes to the theme of the morning with the added extra of hinting to autumn (and the rainy season) starting in South Africa by using Canadian (where we are now living) elements such as the maple leaves, maple syrup candy and all the images in the slide show was from Canadian fall scenes.
So much goes into one stage design that I thought it would be worthwhile to break up the design elements and explore each in more detail.
