Today I am going to make a beautiful floral centrepiece with a step by step guide.
Flowers and Foliage:
First fill a container with clean water and some soluble plant food, drop the floral foam into the water to soak thoroughly. Don’t push the floral foam down but let the water absorb.
When thoroughly wet place in the clear saucer and tape over and round to make it secure.
Cut the Salal tips into short lengths and start placing in the floral foam to make a compact circular shape.
When you are happy that the floral foam is covered, give the foliage a liberal spray of leaf shine, and you are ready to place the flowers.
Start by placing the Roses evenly around the design, followed by the Eryngium.
Next add the Calla Lilies, small tip – as the Calla Lilies have soft fleshy stems it is sometimes difficult to get them into the foam, I make a small hole with a stick and then it is easier to get the stem in.
Add the Freesias to fill in the gaps.
Now it is time to assemble your design.
Take your tall glass vase and place a submersible light at the bottom
Fill the vase with scrunched cellophane
Fill the vase to the top with water
