I have a great post today for all of you – a step by step pictorial to creating a wall of flowers! Events In Bloom of Tampa, Florida has been kind enough to share their photos of a flower wall they created for a corporate client.
In all 9 squares of floral foam were attached to a wooden frame -

Designing with Resendiz Brothers Flowers & Foliages

Resendiz Brothers Protea Farm

Recently Resendiz Brothers Protea Growers sent out the above boxes of goodies to Laurie from Fleurie, Carmel from Mt Lebanon Floral and Myself. I find it so interesting how three floral designers in three different areas of the USA can receive the same box of goodies and come up with such different designs, interesting isn’t it??

First, a closeup of each flower & foliage we received -

Gaillardia vs Craspedia

What happens when Craspedia (billy balls) isn’t available? Or perhaps your client likes the idea of a fun texture like craspedia, but the yellow is a bit too bright. Maybe you are concerned about the amount of pollen on the craspedia and allergies?
Laurie of Fleurie Flowers has a solution! She does a bit of work on the gaillardia flower & Voila, a faux Craspedia!

Pretty clever, right? I like how it ads a softer touch than the craspedia would have to the bouquets.

Thank you, Laurie!
