Arranging wisteria, lilies, orchids & leaves into a tall glass jar. This arrangement works great for table flowers for a wedding or function.
Things to gather:
- Tall glass cylinder or old fashioned glass spaghetti jar: http://amzn.to/2fzgZXa
- 5 stems white wisteria: http://amzn.to/2eMnVBx
- 3 stems white orchids: http://amzn.to/2fEoBXo
- 5 tropical leaves: http://amzn.to/2fEqdR8
- 2/3 stems white Casablanca lilies: http://amzn.to/2fmWc8L
- White berries
- Jute/rope for embellishing base of glass container: http://amzn.to/1PYc3WK
The method being demonstrated in this video is what I call a hand held design or informally gathered groupings of flowers to cascade down sides of container.
Take the leaves in your hand and form these into a collar effect or ring. Now bend or manipulate wisteria to drop down and place these amongst the leaf collar or circle.
Repeat with the white orchids. Allow them to gracefully fall or cascade down amongst the leaves.
Take the lilies and insert these to rest above that which is cascading down.
Place the berries to fill any gaps that might need filling.
Either bind all stems together using jute or rope or a cable tie.
Place down inside the glass vase.
I used water stem/protected artificial flowers which now allows me to fill vase with water for a more natural look. You could also intersperse fresh tropical leaves or foliage or perhaps a few fresh blooms if desired.
Because my design will eventually rest on a round sea-grass place mat (on top of a crisp white linen table cloth), I wrapped the bottom of the glass container with jute or rope to pull all textures together.
