Let us be grateful to the people who make us happy; they are the charming garderners who make our souls blossom
~ Marcel Proust
Ever thought of sending a bouquet of flowers to express your gratitude or appreciation? Buy roses for your loved ones or family members and you show a sign of your deep appreciation and love towards them. Get the deep pink roses as this color simply means 'Thank You'. Christmas is coming and it brings abundance joy of life. Also the moment to say 'Thank You' to our loved ones for always being there for us!
During the period of less than six months, the readership of www.mywisewife.com under floral arrangement category is growing on the bullish trend. 'Sweet Dreams' is designed special for you to express my gratitude on your visit. Every visit of yours counts as it motivates me to compose more variety of floral arrangements. My passion soars as the story of flower arrangement keeps going! Thank you for making my dream comes true!
On the same note, I hope 'Sweet Dreams' will provide some insights for flower aficionados like me to initiate your own floral arrangement hobby to fulfill 2009 new year resolution. I have accomplished mine this year, why not you?
Have A Blessed Christmas and A Happy New Year!
Deep pink roses (bought from Cameron Highlands), Baby's Breath and yellow Aster as the fillers.
Inspired by the wrapper of a lovely candy, 'Sweet Dreams' comes alive. Candid idea, this is a contemporary design as this composition is rarely found in floral arrangement books or references. Using a recycle ice-cream container as the floral bowl, it was wrapped with colorful gift material to resemble the wrapper of a sweet or a candy. At the middle portion, the oasis held 14 roses in a semi-circular shape (pink line illustrated below when viewing from front) unwraps the mystery of the candy sharing the sweetness of life as an expression of gratitude.
If viewing from top, the shape is exactly like a candy!
1. Prepare the gift wrapper and fold them at opposite ends to resemble a wrapped candy. Tie with red plastic ribbon.
2. Chop the oasis to fit the shape of the floral bowl.
3. Compose from front view and top view.
4. Start with the middle stalk of a rose to create a balance composition. Then, make these roses into a semi-circular shape at front view.
On top view, these roses will show an oval shape.
5. Insert the curly tea leaves and capitalize the nice leaves from roses.
6. Introduce the yellow aster as fillers.
7. Add on Baby's Breath to brighten the arrangement. Deep pink and white are simply perfect match of colors!
8. I present to you the contemporary design of 'Sweet Dreams'.
Thank you, thank you and thank you!
