Here is a video of the last arrangement I made on Monday. I used all the roses and colourful flowers I had picked in this one.
The first thing you might notice is that I use a leaf in the vase to hide the stems. This is a sort of leaf that does not easily break down in water, so is perfect for this kind of work.
If I was making a hand posy, where all the stems are neat and tidy because they are all radiating from a single point where they are tied, it could be a different thing. The stems of the flowers i was using were all over the place which is not so attractive. Also the colour in the leaf tied the whole arrangement together.
I hope you have enjoyed these videos. I am afraid the static phone camera is not as good for these larger arrangements as the first one. Maybe i should have picked it up and shown you more of what I was doing. I promise to do better next time!
