Flower Festival, Methodist Church Hall, Durbanville, South Africa: Two are better than one

This was a Flower Show staged by the Durbanville Flower Club. We meet once a month in the hall attached to this Church.

Two are better than one

Each designer received a Bible verse to interpret in our design. Mine was: Ecclesiastes 4:9-10 - "Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their labour: If one falls down, his friend can help him up"

Two are better than one

I wove two blades of lily grass through two stems of lilies (three times) to create a stable design, one being held up by the other to create a Lily spiral arrangement

Also see the club design Floral Kneelers that I coordinated with the members for this show

Every week I add a new design with related tutorials. Be sure to subscribe to receive an email notification with design inspiration.

This is my ongoing creative workbook to research and capture design projects and techniques. You will mostly find ideas for floral art but I will also include some other projects such as gift packaging, cards and even cake decorating with a few lifestyle projects arranged in between.

Everything you see in this workbook was designed, made and photographed by me, unless specific credit is given to another designer.
