Here’s a look into the stages of an arrangement in foam! I thought you guys would be keen to see the #bts
on this design process:
1) 👉🏼 I always start with something leafy and structural of some sort, in this case copper beech. This is where I define the skeleton shape of the arrangement. You can see the long on the left and a shorter on the right, forming a sort of right angled triangle with the foam - can you kinda see it?
2) 👉🏼 Next, I start adding more foliage and texture to create more volume, followed by some initial feature blooms, still keeping relatively to the same base structure.
3) 👉🏼 Now this is when I amp it up even more, creating the majority of the arrangement. The base shape becomes more voluminous, and I continue with adding lots of flowers, until I’m about 75-90% complete. Depending on the situation and time available on-site, these are key factors to consider how much is pre-arranged. In this case, it’s about 80%, as it’s been very hot and certain flowers don’t do as well in foam over longer periods than others, so I’m going to amp it up further tomorrow and on-site at the venue.
And that’s it! Hope you guys enjoyed that... Let me know if you want to see the final version of it at the venue! ☺️
