The flower arranger at work
Tiffany: “To give the bouquet a ‘look’ that is truly unique and provide adequate support to the heavier materials, like the Amaryllis, the first thing I did was to construct a frame. I used Tonkin sticks for this frame, which I then wrapped in Lehner wool. Next, I arranged the sticks in criss-cross fashion and tied them together sturdily.”
“When putting together the bouquet, start with the bulb-shaped items. This will allow you to create depth. Next, add the longer flowers. Put in the Amaryllis last, because its stem is so fragile.”
Tiffany finished the bouquet with the same type of wool that she wrapped around the Tonkin sticks. The soft material is highly decorative and has another important advantage: it prevents the stems from being crushed.
What is so special about this creation is that even though you are using many different types of Christmas flowers there is still a sense of unity.
