RHS Hampton Court Palace Flower Show 2013 – Jane Packer Flowers Floristry Demonstration : Part 2

I hope you enjoyed my blog post earlier today which featured Part 1 of a floristry demonstration by the Jane Packer Flowers team at the RHS Hampton Court Palace Flower Show.

This blog post features the second hand-tied bouquet, which was made by Akira.

And here’s a close-up. Isn’t it stunning?

Akira started with stems of delphinium, which he spiralled.

Then he added stocks in two different shades of pink.

Followed by hydrangeas…

Then asparagus foliage…

And finally, he added a collar of Fatsia japonica.

Here’s the finished design below, which was very structural compared to the domed design in Part 1.

And I loved it…in particular the way that the colour of the hydrangeas picked up both the purple/blue tones of the delphiniums and the pink of the stocks.

I hope you’ve enjoyed seeing these two beautiful hand-tied bouquets being made today.

Tomorrow, I’ll be featuring two more designs from the Jane Packer Flowers team at the show.
