Margaret's 1st arrangement

Margaret's 1st arrangement

With Easter nearly upon us, Margaret used a craftwork backdrop to which eggs and other seasonal accessories had been affixed as the background for her arrangement. An asymmetrical triangle of foliage containing yew, forsythia and fatsia leaves became the framework, and plaited palm leaves added another interesting texture and shape to the design. Sunflowers, orange carnations and blue Iris were added to the foliage and finished off with a nest of yellow raffia in which some chocolate eggs had been placed. This stunning arrangement, which not only looks good but would taste good, is this month’s image, and you may note the two cheeky faces in the lower sunflowers which Margaret is holding in her left hand.
