Video: Entry Table Floral Arrangement How-To
In this video, Kelly uses one of her favorite planters from TJ Maxx with a liner for a fresh-flower arrangement. The key ingredients are Viburnum, Mock Orange, and Poppies. You'll learn about the undertone colors in flowers and how attention to this can bring unity to your ingredient choices. As you watch, notice that each of the flowers are of a creamy white color palette. However, they also bring in a yellow hint in the center of the flowers, especially the poppy and mock orange.
It is important to begin by covering the base, as usual, and then work on the shape. Note how Kelly creates a "greater shape," where all the flowers work together to create a new shape in the vessel. Perfect for an entry!
When you have one flower that has a strong center color (like the mock orange), it is important to keep the centers of the other flowers similar.
Save your longer stems to help create the shape of your arrangement.
Use the natural shape of each stem to your advantage. Let the flowers show you where they need to live in the arrangement.
Sometimes, you may want to wait to place fragile flowers (like poppies) until you arrive at the event location.
