With much pleasure I bring you a fabulous instalment of THURSDAY FLOWERS
The second year of my studies is flying by at the rate of knots and as I edge a little closer to completing my course I am already starting to miss it.
I'm not sure how that it is at all possible but it is true.
I LOVE THIS COURSE !!!!
We are at the really, really fun creative stage of the course and this week our class was asked to work our magic on a big corporate affair. It was a big posh 'do' with all of the floristry reps there, so we had to really raise the bar and make this event something amazing.
AND I THINK WE DID !
The whole class split into groups to make different designs.
These designs below was what I made in my group.
We had to make table centrepieces.
We each made our own and we given the opportunity to put our own flair into it. Each of us created something amazing and had our own style. It never ceases to amaze me how we all have the same bunches of flowers to work with but each of us creates something unique that's to our own style.
'Being different is a very good thing'
THIS DESIGN BELOW
is called a birdcage design.
It is all made with love and patience and a whole lot of joy.
We used Ribbon Grass, stunning Orchids and Chrysanthemums
We also made this wonderful design !
I must tell you that the theme for this event was a phoenix rising from the ashes. The design that we moulded our designs to, was comprised of lots of earthy tones followed by a shot of bright violet so we Incorporated these colours into the designs.
Firstly we made a cone and painstakingly glued Autumn tone leaves in a pattern all around it.
We each came up with something different, here are a few of our cones pictured below. Mine is the one in the middle.
and this is the completed design all ready for delivery.
I was very proud of my work and I loved that we learnt lots of new skills making these designs.
It was such a fun day, we shared a joke or two, I got stuck to my design at one point with a large dollop of glue (lol) and as usual had fun following my dream.
