Three Drops of Floral Chocolate

I wanted to show off these magnificent chocolate brown cymbidiums, and I also wanted to create a meaningful Bridal design as an early start to the chocolate goodness that comes around every Valentine’s Day.

A romantic floral art arrangement that can also be used as a bridal design

The design drips down in three tiers each celebrating life, love and connection.

Floral art arrangement celebrating your roots

The first drop is to honor your roots, your past. I draped fine ivy roots to gently touch the orchids

Willow sphere with hazel, ceropegia woodii and chocolate brown cymbidium orchids

The middle drop is to look forward to a budding future. Hazel buds are woven into the willow. I also dangle a stem of rosary vine (ceropegia woodii) with the sprouting green end just touching the orchids.

The last drop is to celebrate your present. Healthy variegated green grass are snugly hugging willow sphere.

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.
