Roses: Out Of The Vase

willow-and-roses

We sure get “stuck” designing in vases for our clients.  Seems they expect, no DEMAND, these beauties come in mucky water vessels.   Time to mix it up my friends!  An inexpensive container lends itself to creating so much more.  A cluster of willow, some moss, mix up the foliage….good to go!

Without much mechanical fuss, the willow gives the design a grand look for the dollars spent.  Remember to always cut the thick  bottom of the willow into a thinner version;  then it will stay well secured in delivery or just to keep its place in the design, no matter where it goes.

One element to professional floral design is layering your greens.  This gives your arrangement much more interest and depth.

A bit of dangling Spanish moss softens the willow…..almost how the moss naturally grows on oak trees.  Emulating nature is a keen way to embellish our designs.

Always try new things;  we never know till we put ourselves out there!

    1. That’s so great to hear, Anne. I think the majority of florists are afraid to go “out of the box” even just a bit. I’ve learned that if you don’t try things, the customer will never change their ways either. Thanks for commenting Anne!
