[MUSIC] [Music]! So how do we get from here to here well? The first thing you need to look for is the Vars itself. The Vars needs to be quite short as you can see with this bars here. It’s not very tall and the main reason for that is so that guests can see over the VARs at the table. When you fill up your visors, I would recommend you. Go about half way That gives enough water for the flowers to drink all night. You can use any style of foliage. I’ve chosen to use some eucalyptus today. The eucalyptus that Tong tends to have a silver feel to it. I think it goes really nicely with the roses that we’ve chosen for this wedding when you’re cutting your foliage. I’m going coming nice and close and show you how to do this. What you’re looking for is nice, long, straight lengths of foliage. You’re going to cut pretty much from there sometimes. I’ll cut down here to start with, and then I’ll have another. Look, you can see here. There’s a nice bunch of foliage, so I’m gonna chop it about there. And that means out of one little pipe piece of that foliage. I’ve actually got three from there. We’re going to strip like that that one’s okay, and just run your hand, literally holding on to the the the foliage itself or the leaves itself and just pull like that, and it comes off really easy. So what you end up with his pieces like that when you have a look at your? Vars again, it’s perfect. They’re going to sit into the water and be just perfectly situated to drink all night now to the fun part. The roses, there’s all sorts of different styles of roses today. I’m going to use quite a few different ones, but I would recommend you just go for the simple single stem Rose. When you’re looking for your rose, look for nice, long straight lengths like that, and obviously it’s going to have foliage all the way down when you buy it, someone will have quite a few thorns as well, but you need to kind of take off if you can get a D thorn, err, great. I don’t use the disorder for a lot of my work. I tend to just flip them off, so I’ll show you how to do that. First of all, we’re going to cut it down to size a little bit. Be careful not to cut it too short, but it just saves taking a little bit of extra foliage off, then literally just pick the foliage off there. We go if there are thorns. Let me see if I can show you nice and close here. If there are thorns, how I get rid of the thorns without a death. Orner is I literally just do that. We start with one single piece of foliage and we just keep adding until we reach a nice base. The shape you’re trying to create is a round shape, so pieces like that. If you put them on the side that you can get round of shapes. [MUSIC] To be nice and round your base is the most important part of the actual arrangement because it’s going to set the scene for where you place everything into it. So that’s the sort of shape that you want to create round and kind of round like that. Then we add in some filler today. I’m using a player thing called Andromeda. It’s available in springtime in Melbourne. Beautiful fill out. You can see there. It’s got a nice sort of feel to it. It flops a little bit, which is really nice for vases. If you can’t find something like this, you can use other things. Jordan wax is another nice one or let me think what else you could use. Even just some more foliage just to drop like that is lovely, so you just pop them in – to make that round shape even more enhanced the second filler flower. I’ve chosen for this particular arrangement is a sweet pea again. It’s available in springtime. So I love spring. It’s all these wonderful flowers as you can see. It’s got this delicate shoe about it. I love this and a creates that round shape again, Just basically following that shape all the way through [Music] [Music] now to some of the main arrangement flowers, I’m using anemones and it’s a springtime flower. I like the anemones. They’re really cute. They add a bit of a country feel. I feel to the bouquet itself. Something that your guests will probably talk about because it’s just a bit different here. Come the roses. I’m going to be putting the cluster roses together, and then I’m going to add in just some standard roses, which I’ve peeled back. It’s a bit of a technique which is popular right now. So you find a spot that you can pop one side. Then maybe put one on the other side just to balance it out like that, keeping that round shape happening. Then the roses can be if you look at it here. I would pop one. Yeah, I always pop one in the center. Five is a good number because obviously absolutely going to make it look like it’s or in the right shape. I’m there and you’re just popping it through. Stick it through like that and then. I’m gonna peel that back so that it looks a little bit special. Okay, showing off those patients. That’s one two, three, four and then. I think we can probably put another one there. What do you think here? We have it so the centerpiece now is looking like it’s pretty full, and I think that is starting to really be just about ready to pop into that bars, right, the thing that I tie my bow case. With is the invisible bouquet tying material and it’s stretchy. I love this stuff. You can’t see it at all, and it really doesn’t hurt the flowers. You can use duty. You can use ribbon. You can use an elastic band for that matter if you’d like to, but obviously this is my choice of, um, but I like to use, so you’re going to just wrap that around the base, but you guys can see that, okay, So it’s the base of the, UM, the arrangement, and then I’m gonna have to take it out of you. Just apply it, so I’ll just quickly see if I can tied in front of you, but I don’t know if I’ll be able to [Music] this will test my talent. Maybe it’s a maybe now. I can’t do it! Haha, that’s so from here. What we’re going to do is get our trusty snips and we’re going to cut. Don’t make the mistake of cutting much. The stems too short If you’re unsure, grab your. Vars put it to where you think the flowers are going to actually sit like that And then measure where the stems will be. So we’ve popped it into the Vas. It’s looking pretty good for me, though. I can see there’s a bit of a bare spot. Here, don’t be shy, putting flowers back into the the arrangement. If you think you need to add some more roses or whatever it might be. I’m going to actually put some more foliage and some more roses into here, Just because I think it needs to have a little bit more volume. So let’s pop that Rose in there. Can you see what I’m talking about there? See how it’s a little bit bare, but the shape’s not great, But if you add a rose in there, look at how much better that looks one rose makes all that different, and there it is all finished a lovely guest table centerpiece. Remember that you need a short pass and let half those water out and then follow the steps of my how to do it yourself. Wedding centerpiece video you.
