Today, I spent the afternoon in my third week of floral design class. Last week, I had asked our instructor to try and find me some green carnations for St. Patrick's Day. And she did!
We learned how to make a symmetrical arrangement today. Part of the arrangement was learning how to wire eucalyptus stems. Along with that lesson came the lesson that woring with eucalyptus makes your fingers very sticky (fortunately, I had gloves).
As simple as a symmetrical design looks, I have to tell you that it is a very difficult arrangement to achieve. Mine isn't truly symmetrical, but I can't be too hard on myself because it was my first attempt.
Happy St. Patrick's Day to everyone!
