Electric blue is back and you can see why.
This strong and vibrant colour always flatters the beautiful foliage inserted above. Matching vases sit beneath a cantilever design that supports a carefully balanced bare branch.
Flowers & Foliage
- Curvy twig
- King Proteas
- Leucadendron ‘Yellow Devil’
- Philodendron Xanadu
- Spray Roses
- Tillandsia ‘Old Man’s Beard’
- Variegated Dracaena ‘Song of Jamaica’
Step 1. Soak OASIS® Dekorette Double Brick and drain. Insert groups of King Protea leaves into the
brick alternating with tufts of yellow Leucadendron to establish the perimeter of the design.
Step 2: Divide the length of the Brick into 3. Insert three stems of King Proteas into the left 1/3 of the
design, add a layer of Xanadu leaves underneath to create a solid platform. Insert one stem of King
Protea into the right 1/3 and supplement with Variegated Dracaena to counterbalance the weight.
Step 3: Add succulents with a pavé of Spray Roses in the middle section to bridge the gap
between the two opposing ends. Cover exposed foam with Tillandsia. Hold a stem of
Xanadu and run your thumb underneath and slightly force it to bend into a semi curve.
Place this next to the Spray Roses and over the King Protea to form a canopy.
Insert 2 more stems of Xanadu horizontally to extend the length of the design, insert
the curvy twig just behind the large group of King Proteas to capture the negative
space and add extra dimension to the design. This will enhance the ‘cantilever’ effect required. Spray completed design with Floralife® Finishing Touch before balancing on vases.
