A “king” of texture!
I am a huge fan of king proteas! The textures are so fun to work with, but then again I am all about texture. Frankly I think it is one of the most important element in design. These two designs are showcasing the king protea in different ways.
The first arrangement is a compact bubble bowl. The protea is surrounded by sweet William, burgundy anemones, pepper berry (the texture is awesome!) and encircled with bullion wire.
The stylized arrangement is created in a shinny black container with a dark brown branch as a strong line. The flowers are arranged in a horizontal manner to create another strong line. Bright colors are bright in to the arrangement using mini calla lilies, veronica, mini gerbera daisies, and makara orchids. From every angle there is an interesting sight. The pink wire half rings and the orange sisal “shelf” in the back show a great use of not floral material in a floral design.
Such different arrangements based from one type of flower! This is why I love my job, it is always different!
