Marie's final arrangement

The final design of the evening was arranged in a square-sided trough with a matching tall container. Maria rolled Aspidistra leaves into tubes and threaded white roses through the middle giving a unique look to the finished piece. She also revealed one or two other ways in which we could manipulate aspidistra and cut palms to use in our own arrangements. Hosta, ferns and palm produced a background for a mass of white Lilies, Carnations, and Orchids, creating a beautiful arrangement (pictured) which was balanced with a secondary, smaller version of the design, and completed with a thick, knotted rope laid round the base.
