Horizontal floral design

The design has three anthuriums, five ti leaves, five calla lillies and five dendrobium orchids

• Secure a piece of floral foam within the confines of the container wrapped in the leaves.

• Establish the framework height and width.

• Insert the five callas deeply into the foam angling them downward into the foam.

• Insert the three anthurium on the other side to balance it,

• Place the ti leaves in the back to mimic a bow.

• Finish with the orchids to fill in and extend length.

Don’t be tempted to add too many flowers. Keep the profile of the design low.

“Creative Living" is produced and hosted by Sheryl Borden. The show is carried by more than 118 PBS stations in the United States, Canada, Guam and Puerto Rico and is distributed by Westlink, Albuquerque.
