How DO you keep kitty paws from “rearranging” your florals? (smile)
That’s a challenge ! I have no idea.
Great video and beautiful arrangement!!!
Great video–very simple. I may try it soon.
Beautiful video and beautiful arrangement. Now, please all you floristas, advise me on my weekly challenge of creating an arrangement in a 24-inch Baccarat vase for the foyer. I can’t use floral foam or marbles or pebbles or anything that would scratch the crystal, I can’t get floral tape to stick to the crystal to make a grid, and I need to make tall arrangements. I love this part of my job, but this vase is a pill sometimes.
Have you tried the clear glass floral “frogs”? They fit inside and have holes that hold your flowers upright. Some antique ones are around. Also new ones can be found. Check the internet. I have mine from years ago.
You could also use bamboo skewers cut to fit in an X at the top of the vase where they will be hidden by the flowers. Be certain to precisely cut the skewers to fit snugly in the vase. This has worked well for me in tall clear glass vases such as Waterford or other crystal.
Outstanding! Great video. I can’t wait to make my own arrangement this weekend with flowers from our local farmers market!
Gorgeous arrangement and great instructional video…she made it look and sound SO easy! Thanks for sharing, Phyllis!
Our photography stylist are so talented. I live sharing things with you.
Can’t wait to watch the video and practice! I am pretty good with the dump and fluff method of arranging but am looking to expand my experience to formal arrangements.
stunning arrangement + great tip on tulips from comments xxpeggybraswelldesign.com
Stunning arrangement. Don’t forget to soak your floral foam in water first. Also a hint for a vase of all tulips…
add a bit of gin into the water. I also pierce the tulip with a straight pin at the base which “freezes” the bloom.
My tulip vase lasts about two weeks. If your tulips stretch for the sun simply wrap them (vase and all) over night
and they will stand up again.
What a great little video, thank you for sharing!
Thank you SO much for this step-by-step video. It gives me a glimmer of hope that I can dare to take the “first step”.
