Floristry Taster - Week 2


This week I made my very first buttonhole/corsage. I'm jolly pleased with it, even though I had to make do with a bunch of flowers from the Co-op. The florist I've been using didn't really have anything suitable in stock when I popped in at the last minute (2 hours before my class - eek!)

It was far more technical than last week's effort, which really appealed to my technical side. I like to have a bit of structure and some rules to follow/break.

My apparatus: leaves, florist tape, wire and ribbon.

Wiring my rose leaves (not the best choice as they are too soft, but for practicing they did the job)

Wiring the ferny stuff - not even sure what it's called *slaps wrist*

Taping the wires - probably the most tricky part

Wiring and taping the flowers (and my crap bow which I chose not to include in the final display. Not keen on them in general. Think they are a bit tacky.)

The final result from behind.

And from the front.
