Kate's first creation

Kate's first creation

The first arrangement was in a pot which had been wrapped in paper, rather in the way you would wrap a hand-tie, which was held in place with short pieces of dogwood wired together. This was to be an all round coffee table arrangement and into the centre of it, to give height, pink gladioli were placed; a darker shade of sedum was added at intervals around this and the spaces filled with white spider chrysanthemums. “Handle” roses with pale edges to their petals reflected the colours already used and were placed throughout the design. Variegated geranium foliage, house leeks and bunches of dogwood on sticks all contributed to the finished design.
