When I selected the materials for this wreath I paid special attention to the relation between flower shape and its colour. The softer shaped flowers are used in a darker more masculine colour while the larger harder more masculine flowers are used in a softer more feminine colour. The square gift boxes with there hard shape contrast again nicely with the round form of the wreath.
I had these fabric covered boxes that are very useable in an arrangement, I’ve cut of the lit.
And lined it with plastic before filling it with floral foam.
A wooden plateau functions as base for the wreath. The boxes are placed irregularly in a wreath shape on the plateau. The overall filling will be simple, clear shaped and not too mixed. The maximum amount of varieties in one box will be 2 types of materials.
The colored Eucalyptus combines nicely with the colour of the plateau and there for creating a nice harmony between base and arrangement.
The gold colored branches give a nice Christmas touch to it.
The blue/green colour of the poppy seed heads got an extra accent with the gold spray-paint colored tops.
Make sure that no floral foam is visible, materials as moss are useful to cover the last small gaps.
By adding small glass tea light holders to the arrangement a very festive effect will be created a real show piece on your dining table!
