Christine de Beer - effortless floral craftsman
Preserve some floral material to design with when it is but not quite Autumn outside.
Another version of a design idea I showed you last month... A vine wreath armature to balance a dramatic single stem anthurium. Only this time I take it a bit further.
Knit a corona (as in that inside skirt like part of a daffodil) by weaving a Ceropegia woodii vine around the stamen filament of a lily.
Using the design elements as mechanics to secure the design elements.
It all started with my twig being just too small to wedge into the glass vase tight enough to keep my orchid stem in place...
Passion fruit flowers never lasts long. Not even growing outside on a vine. But the buds continue to open once cut making a wreath display ideal for an even changing passion fruit...
Utilizing those not so obvious characteristics of your design details to make a minimal clear glass summer floral design.
This design is all about that line there where the water meets the lemon blossom stem...
Create a sturdy platform from bark to design an entire forest floor on a single foxtail fern frond
Step up the flip-flop design by decorating it with some long lasting succulent flowers. It might look delicate... but these flowers are robust and long lasting.
Paint bamboo husks with strong tea to create a pretty orchid.
Add the design details to the wood... and not to the orchid plant so that it can easily be removed to soak for a long lasting still growing display.
