This is a posy style design, made in a plastic dish with floral foam for the mechanics. This type of arrangement is suitable for a small side table or coffee table, or as a centrepiece for wedding reception tables. It also makes a charming gift to give to a hostess. I started by defining the outline with Cotoneaster, and used some of this for the height. I then added some Leatherlef fern, and some small Ivy leaves. Five stems of orange spray Carnations were added next, cutting them into smaller pieces to make them go further, and these were inserted all round the design, making sure they were balanced visually. I then added eight pale peach Roses, five around the outside of the design, equally spaced, and the remaining three in the centre. Some pale green button spray Chrysanthemums were used for recession, and the design was finished off with some Ivy flowers to add interest and texture.
