This is my last blog post about her demo, which shows Hannah making an arrangement inspired by a Japanese bento box.
First, she filled a shallow dish with slices of soaked floral foam.
Then she made a grid using snake grass and wire. She said that instead of snake grass, you could use pussy willow or twigs.
In three sections in the dish she inserted Vanda orchids and in the other three, she placed tulips.
Alternatively, you could use roses or chrysanthemum blooms.
To cover the floral foam completely, she poured purple sand into the gaps between the flower heads. But you could use small stones or moss.
Hannah said that this simple floral design would make a great table arrangement, as it’s not very tall and people can talk over it.
I think all the arrangements are stunning, but I particularly love the designs featured in Part 1…a wonderful combination of colours and textures.
Which is your favourite?
