Shirley's 2nd arrangement

So, what had we shopped for? Perhaps it was that little black dress. Something as classic as the LBD requires a classy arrangement and Shirley gave us the classic Hogarth Curve on a tall black container; ruscus provided the framework for the shape, red roses alternating with green carnations followed the line, amaryllis gave weight to the centre of the design and a cymbidium orchid was the finishing touch.
