Pew Perfection Lift the spirits of every guest with a colourful chair design. The LOMEY® Pew Holder is designed to hang from the end of a pew but why limit it to that location. It could work equally well at a reception or this simple yet stylish design could ever become a bouquet! There are endless possibilities so just follow Michael’s instructions to test them out.
Cover the handle of the LOMEY® Pew Holder with green ribbon and soak the Floral Foam. Insert three Billabong Reeds into the base of the holder and secure with OASIS® Bindwire.
Add Nandina foliage into the front of the base then place Grevillea foliage on the edges. Lightly place short pieces of Goanna Claw into the centre.
Evenly distribute stems of Craspedia and Berzelia throughout the foliage for balance and harmony.

More wiring formed the glittering frame of the trailing bouquet below. This dazzling snake connected the traditional gift of money to serpent-like foliage while broken white plates and sugar-coated almonds extended the Greek theme. Continue reading…
