Shades of Autumn

For this design, I have used pre- soaked floral foam, utilising the usual mechanics of frogs, pot tape into a lined basket. If a lined basket is unavailable, alternative options could be a bowl secured to the inside of the basket. Instead of a basket you could use a pumpkin (which are available from garden centres and supermarkets I saw these on a recent visit to Gordon Riggs but Im sure the others do stock them now), a large water melon could also be used, go on experiment, it could be fun!.

  • So as I say, I filled my plastic lined basket, with floral foam and secured. Loops of interesting twigs at the back created height to the design enabling flowers and foliage from the mixed bunch I purchased form the supermarket to be arranged in groups lower down creating interest and different textures. Artichokes, Hypericum and interesting seed heads etc. from the garden give a seasonal touch.
  • N.B. Some of the wheat has been grouped together and secured on to a kebab stick with pot tape for insertion into the oasis as well as the gourds.

Have fun and enjoy, if you would like to share your design with other flower club members please send me a photograph for me to upload on to our website. dawnsfloralheart@btinternet.com





Have Fun, Keep Safe & Enjoy!
