Saturday, October 25, 2008Week 4 halloween arrangement
As it is Halloween next week we made a Halloween arrangement for week 4. After taking the top of the pumpkin and scooping out the insides a dish with wet foam the size of the opening was taped on ready for the flowers. First we made a web like construction with black sticks pushing them into the outside of the pumpkin. dose not really show up on photo. I used a variety of flowers, monkshood, large green chrysanthemums red gerbra, sunflowers with the petals taken off, kangaroo paw,brassica, some seed heads and foliage finished off with a big black raffia bow. We had some fun with this arrangement. Some of the ladies brought spiders, cobwebs and witches. A few of the ladies were a bit apprehensive about this design but they all liked what they made. If I have taught them anything they all say they look at the foliage and flowers everywhere they go and with a different eye, they all have the flower arranging bug. We only have one week left as Robert and I are going to Scotland the week after and then the shop gets to full with Christmas gifts and there is no space. I hope they continue to do some arranging at home.
