Sympathy Tribute

Created this sympathy tribute today in the florist for a client…white lilies and pink roses…a last minute order.  As the lilies were not open and showing colour decided to add a few stems of open white amaryllis (for immediate impact) and white freesias for the scent.

Based Tribute

Used a mass of gypsophila to base a heart-shaped foam base.

The technique of basing means massing or covering a base with a dense covering of one type of product; chrysanthemums are most commonly used for this technique given their all year round availability and their reasonable price, other materials could be used such as roses, carnations, sedum, hydrangea, berried ivy or molucella to name a few alternative materials.
