Flower arranging: shades of autumn
Mellow seasonal hues, with chrysanthemums, gerberas and autumn leaves
You will need:
● opaque vase in a strong colour
● sticky tape
● selection of foliage in various shades
● packet of dried leaves (available from florists)
Make a grid across the top of the vase with tape. This will prevent any long stems flopping over.
Add longer stems of twig foliage first, making sure they are different heights.
Add leafy foliage, keeping the height lower than the twig foliage.
Trim stems on gerberas and place three in vase – fill in any gaps with chrysanthemums. Add dried leaves to bottom of arrangement
