1. Whether you sell them in your store or purchase them at retail, decorative serving trays not only make a fine gift, they can be adapted as floral containers that accommodate lavish florals. A pair of tiered trays is even more impressive than just


one. You will probably need to deliver this design in two pieces and assemble it on site. Use a block of dry foam to support the top tray and a Lomey Designer Dish as a liner, with wet foam strapped securely into the dish. 2. The top tray can rest on both dry and wet foam. 3. Fill the foam in the top tray first, adding pink roses “market bunch” style (all at the same height). Air brushed pink hydrangea fills in at


the base around the outside. 4. Cut bicolor carnations to short stems and use them to cover foam between the rose stems. Now to the bottom tray, where the positioning of the foam allows you to make insertions that jut to either side. 5. Fill in the center with round focus flowers: here, ornamental kale, double lisianthus, and two-tone Picasso callas, accented with Italian ruscus. To insert the kale, trim the end of the stem so it comes to a point and inserts into foam without crushing it. b

Floral design by Tim Farrell AIFD, AAF, PFCI

Framing and Shadowing In many ways, a floral design is more like a sculpture than like a painting. And yet, designers can learn much from painters about the play of color and form, and about the arts of composition and perspective.


Photography by Ron Derhacopian

In this month’s design, Tim has placed bells of Ireland so that they curve inward, defining the outer edges of the design (like parentheses) and leading the eye back toward the interior, with its bright pink assembly. In a sense, the loops of black midollino also frame the flowers below. They add line movement, in contrast to the round forms of the lilies and the ranunculus, which provide resting places for the eye. They also create unity (a principle of design) by echoing the slender black lines of the Mara Stands.


In The AIFD Guide to Floral Design, framing is defined as “the process of using linear branches or flowers to showcase the materials within. Framing outlines and defines space and typically calls attention to the focal area of a design.”

Shadowing is “the close placement of one material directly behind or beneath the primary material, giving a three-dimensional appearance and enhancing the sense of depth.” Here, one stand is placed behind another, and flowers are placed such that one design shadows another. Flowers in the rear arrangement are generally taller. Shadowing technique can also be used with foam-based floral designs or even vase arrangements, but the transparency of the Mara Stands lends a particular charm to the effect. b

Ideas and techniques for eye-catching “everyday” design.

Artistry, Every Day Floral design by Tom Simmons AIFD, CCF and Cindy Tole AIFD Floral design by Jenny Thomasson AIFD, PFCI, EMC

THE GREEN STRIPE To create a stunning showcase for short-stemmed gloriosa lilies, Jenny started by filling the Meryl Tray with a thin layer of wet floral foam that fills the disk completely. She planted water tubes upright in the foam, then cut about a dozen small ti leaves in half lengthwise. She trimmed the spine and fashioned the leaves into a spiraling shape, working from the center out and stapling them together as she went. When the shape was more or less complete she fit it over the water tubes and added the gloriosas. She poured gold gravel over the leaves and the water tubes, which helps to hold both of them securely in place. She inserted green hypericum berries through the gravel into the foam, and as a final touch, twists of kiwi vine sprayed copper—with a portion of the bark carefully scraped away to reveal a green stripe underneath.

Artistry, Every Day

READY FOR TAKEOFF At left, black sticks, some studded with mini artificial pomegranates, send radial energy out from a bright orange wreath created in an Oasis Design Ring. The wreath rests on top of a low obsidian-finish bowl that resonates with the sticks, with the black centers of the gerberas, and with the black Glass Nuggets in the center of the bowl (dotted with red hypericum berries). Even the furry silver tips on the pincushion proteas help to harmonize the dramatic, orange and shinyblack color scheme. ARMS OUTSTRETCHED It’s amazing what you can do with wire, tape and twine (see page 23). Imagine this design without the curving accents, very much like orchid roots, that frame the two heads of ginger and encircle the burst of bouvardia at the base. Spreading like a dancer’s arms from the top of the tall, graceful Emma Vase, they seem connected to the curving stems visible within it. And indeed, each of the structures outside the vase is supported by a wrapped wire that forms part of the gently swirling stem bundle.

julyJUNE 20102017 24 15

Artistry, Every Day STICKS AND STONES At left, artificial pussy willow seems to float in mid air, cutting diagonal lines around a stand of white lilies. Straight willow, steel grass, and lengths of 16-gauge wire are interwoven with the pussy willow in a dense tangle of intersecting lines. Jenny glued the thick florist wires together and sprayed them gray to form the heart of the armature, which also has legs (for details, see page 23). To stabilize both the armature and the lily stems, Jenny placed river rocks inside the Chateau Vase (first covering the opening over the hollow foot of the vase with a clear plastic Lomey Designer Dish, because she wanted the foot to remain clear and empty of the rocks). With the armature securely in place, she added the lily stems along with the straight willow whips. PHALE SAFE At right, blooming phalaenopsis plants lift their heads within a protective, space-defining grove of steel grass and delphinium. Jenny began by lining the outside of the low glass cylinder with a red ti leaf, then placed the plastic orchid pots inside it, along with enough wet floral foam to wedge the pots firmly into position. She inserted, first the steel grass, then the delphinium stems into both the floral foam and the soil in the plant pots, and poured water into the cylinder to make sure all of the cut flowers would get enough moisture. More red ti leaves—looped with the stem inserted through the leaf and inserted into the plant pots—fill out the base, where the soil and the foam are also covered with blue Pearlized Glass.

Artistry, Every Day

THE FLOATING FRINGE Below, a rich medley of flowers seems to float in a horizontal line, parallel to the table surface, thanks to a custom-built structure that could be, if rented and not sold outright, reused over and over again. The base is a small bread pan upside down, with vertical rods projecting from the top (see page 23 for a how-to photo). The pan and rods are covered with glued-on, dried banksia leaves. The flowers drink from wet foam glued onto a long rectangular piece of two-inch-thick Styrofoam, impaled on the four upright rods. With the structure complete, Jenny filled it with roses, spray mums, mini cymbidium orchids, and eucalyptus leaves; the fringe of hanging amaranthus balances the dominant horizontal lines and enhances the floating effect.

27 2010 18 july

ANY WAY YOU SLICE IT Above, oval wood slices make a broad collar for a woodsy bouquet. For more on how Jenny made the collar, see page 23. With the collar in place, she laced in a mixed bouquet of blooms, many with a field-flower look, including waxflower, dark red astilbe, mini callas, phlox, hypericum, and bupleurum. A few of the wood slices are glued to long sticks and added to the center of the bouquet; one of the wood-slice “blossoms” incorporates a slender bundle of bear grass.

JUNE 2017 19

Artistry, Every Day BAMBOO TOWERS To make the reusable base for the design at left, Jenny cut longer pieces of thick bamboo into sections with a hacksaw and glued the bottom sections to the zinc tray, then glued more sections on top. The effect is one of horizontal, diagonal and vertical lines, zigzagging on their way up; the bamboo towers look as though they could topple at any moment, creating dynamic tension. Rivercane extends the look upward and allowed Jenny to create an illusion of floating or sliding bamboo rings. To complete the design, she added stems of ornithogalum and stripped fern in water tubes. GENTLE CURVES To make the design at top right, Jenny soaked straight willow whips to make them flexible, then wedged flat bundles inside the low glass bowl to make a basketlike armature. She filled the bottom with glass beads in mixed colors and added the tulip stems and bear grass so as to echo the woven willow. CINNAMON, PEACHES AND CREAM At lower right, Jenny secured cinnamon sticks with greening pins to a base of wet foam, which she had first carved to receive them (see page 23). The horizontal lines and organic texture provide a simple but charming foundation for a scattering of roses and hypericum, with birch twigs radiating diagonally on each side; cork chips cover the remaining exposed floral foam. 20

IN THE CLOUD Structures with a handcrafted look can fetch a high price, Jenny has found. This one is made with 18-gauge florist wire, wrapped with Bind Wire and fashioned into a basket shape, as seen on the opposite page. The ends of the wires hold mini water tubes, also individually wrapped with Bind Wire. With the structure complete, Jenny filled the mini water tubes with water and added hanging amaranthus (being careful not to let the flowers hide the Bind Wire wrappings on the tubes) and gypsophila. Bending over the top of the design are thin florist wires tipped with dried Banksia integrifolia leaves (secured with glue). These leaves keep their color as they dry, cream on one side, deep olive-green on the other.

How-to tips for

Artistry, Every Day

CINNAMON, PEACHES AND CREAM, page 21 Long cinnamon sticks, pinned in place on top of wet floral foam, make a bed of horizontal lines that lends interest, contrast and organic texture to flowers inserted around and above them. To give the final design depth, carve the foam in the bowl first so that the cinnamon sticks are somewhat elevated above the main area of the foam and not all at exactly the same height.

ARMS OUTSTRETCHED, page 15 These curving, stretching, organic-looking shapes are easy to make and reuse. The key to their stability is the rule of three: Take three wires, each wrapped in floral tape, and tape them together, but allow them to spread at the top. Attach the three, divergent wire tips to another, curving piece of taped wire, forming a triangle. Wrap the triangle as well as the curving wire with twine or yarn , varying the thickness for a natural look. Now you can bend the decorative tops of the wire stems any way you choose.

ANY WAY YOU SLICE IT, page 19 To make a broad collar or wreath decorated with oval wood slices, start with two wire wreath forms, a smaller one inside a larger one, and zip-tie them together. This furnishes a wider surface to cover with the wood ovals, glued on with pan glue. To stabilize the form as it rests on top of the clear glass vase, take three or four lengths of florist wire and attach them to the innermost ring of the wreath forms, then pull them together in the center and twist them together. The wires will support flower stems as you lace them in, and then the stems against the wires will stabilize the collar.

STICKS AND STONES, page 16 To make an armature like this one, cut thick florist wire into pieces. Lay the pieces criss-crossed on your worktable and connect them here and there with hot glue on both sides of the tangle (add glue on one side, turn it over, and glue again). Hit the sticks and glue with Design Master Gray Flannel. Weave in cut stems of artificial pussy willow, then steel grass (with floral adhesive). To equip your armature with legs, make pairs of the florist wire and cover each pair with floral tape, almost to the top. In each pair, the two wires, protruding from the taped portion, make a fork that supports the armature. Spiral the taped stems together and bind them at the center with floral tape, so the stem ends splay out and make a stable support on your work table.

THE FLOATING FRINGE, page 18 This design starts with—a small bread pan! placed upside down. Drill four holes into the top and fix four threaded rods upright in the holes, secured with washers and hex nuts. Next, cut a long rectangular piece of two-inch-thick Styrofoam and impale it on the four upright rods, pushing it down far enough that the tips of the rods extend a little beyond the top of the Styrofoam. Glue moss onto the Styrofoam to cover the sides; cover the bread pan and the rods with dried banksia leaves. Now, cut floral foam into rectangles that fit together on top of the Styrofoam, about the same size. Two pieces can be cut to the right shape, then connected by inserting a pair of 18-gauge wires through both of the pieces lengthwise. Cover the foam with glue on the underside to make a watertight seal. Affix it with the glue to the top of the Styrofoam, settling it onto the protruding tips of the metal rods. Wet the foam and insert your flowers.

IN THE CLOUD, page 22 Start with 18-gauge florist wire. This structure has 14 wires, each individually wrapped with Bind Wire. Make a long, hairpin-shaped loop of each wire and twist the wires together like chicken wire, as shown, to make a basket shape. Bend the ends of the wires out and up in right angles from the basket and attach a mini water tube to each one with more Bind Wire. b JUNE 2017 23

GAME NIGHT You might have to be of a certain age to remember when the game Twister was introduced (in the 60s)—but anyone can take graphic inspiration from the plastic mat used to play the game, with its big colored circles. Joyce applied color-coding dots, found in a stationery store, to aspidistra leaves. (She first trimmed the bottom of each leaf on either side, leaving the stem intact, to facilitate insertion deep into the foam.) Then she made “color-coded” designs, placed them in white bowls, and linked them with midollino in imitation of people playing the game. Next, get out the hula hoops! see Where to Buy, page 42-43.

JUNE 2017 25

’ LETS PARTY BY THE SEA Joyce’s take on this popular theme gains impact from the way her Knobby Starfish seem to float above the table surface, glued onto sticks of white mitsumata. She filled the Coral Bowl (below right) with foam and laid the mitsumata on top, pinning it in place with pairs of wired picks, wired together. She covered the pick mechanics with blue hydrangea before adding the rest of her flowers, including blue-dyed fancy carnations. The Seaside vase at left was too glossy to harmonize with the other accessories, so Joyce sprayed it with Design Master Übermatte spray. A faux fishnet adds a fun finishing touch.

GARDEN PARTY Everyone loves a lush look with classic garden flowers, but what can you add that’s different for a conversation piece? How about an upside-down design in an inverted glass bowl, dripping with crystal garlands? Joyce found the inexpensive bowl in a discount store and drilled a hole through the center using a diamond bit, which cost her about $10. “It’s easy,” she says; “it just takes a little time; you keep adding water so it doesn’t get too hot.” (She has drilled more than a dozen glass bowls and not one has broken.) Then she cut a block of foam and reinforced it by wrapping it lightly, first with anchor tape, then with decorative wire. She inserted the ends of the wire through the hole in the bowl; emerging on the other side, the wire serves as a hanger. Crystal garlands are either tied to the wire or attached directly to the glass bowl with waterproof tape. Flower stems, including David Austin roses, are inserted using Floralock™ Plus stem adhesive.

’ LETS PARTY THE BOTANIST’S PARLOR Orchids and ferns, on display in a collection of footed and fluted glass vases, recall the Victorian craze for collecting specimen plants from newly explored and colonized regions. The ferns include umbrella ferns, sword fern leaves, and a small fern plant with rinsed roots tucked into the vase. Other flowers include golden mokara orchids, purple anemones, bullet alliums, cut kalanchoe, Green Trick dianthus, and a sansevieria plant. Nito vine is tucked in here and there to imitate air roots.

GO BOH-ROCCAN Bohemian meets Moroccan in a party theme that marries East and West, elegance and rusticity. The hanging grapevine wreath above comes equipped with a sturdy wire grid built into the center. Joyce placed a Lomey tray onto the grid and filled it with foam, then with flowers in tones and tints of deep pink, peach, and orange, including Juliet David Austin roses, Candy Scoop scabiosa, and peachy-pink cut kalanchoe.

JUNE 2017 33

’ LETS PARTY WALK THE PLANK Since trendy restaurants started serving fish and meats “grilled” on planks of aromatic wood, the look has gained a certain cachet. But you don’t have to be a foodie to appreciate the charm of a table display that features thick slices of raw wood mixed with garden flowers in birch boxes (conveniently lined with zinc). Lichen branches tie it all together; votive holders, matte on the outside and glittered on the inside, add just the right touch of sparkle. b

The Units also provide scholarships to the Teleflora Scholarship Academy—an intensive three-day educational experience, including hands-on design classes, that was created especially for scholarship recipients but is available to all Teleflora florists. With a mission to bring educational opportunities to florists around the country, conveniently and affordably, the Academy travels in 2017 to five cities: Dallas, Milwaukee, Washington, D.C., Charlotte, North Carolina, and Los Angeles. Participants attend four sessions taught by three world-class designers. To find out more about Unit events in your area, check the monthly listings in the Flowers& Industry Events column—or, for the most up-to-date listings, visit and click on the Design Education link, where you can also find information about the Teleflora Scholarship Academy.
