In the Christmas mood!

We had another wonderful class this past weekend! The rose variety we worked with was Vendela, a soft ivory rose. The students were eager, the roses plentiful, and the outcomes beautiful! This classic soft colored rose makes for a beautiful arrangement, classic and modern. But with some additions, it can become a very cheerful Christmas arrangement.

In the last photo, I mixed in some silver brunia, red hypericum (variety called Dolly Parton, go figure!) and ceder in a black cylinder.

The first cut is the deepest... A good clean cut on the base of a flower will help allow it to hydrate.
Establish your points! Setting compass points for your arrangement helps you know where you're going!
Room for just one more! The technique works every time!

It's a wrap! Literally, wrapping up the class...
 In the Christmas mood!
