John's fifth and final arrangement

John then emerged with a really attractive ceramic container consisting of a figure lying on its back holding up a bowl.  Variegated ivy, hellebore and fatsia were amongst the mixture of foliage in this arrangement.  Sugar pink Anastasia formed a line through the design and they were complemented by pink roses and carnations in a darker shade.  Finally, anthuriums which toned beautifully with the rest of the flowers were added.  We all thought this was the final arrangement of the evening and were delighted when John then produced a matching pedestal which set it off beautifully.
