More Flower Arranging At Home Videos >

We thought to do this as we all adjust our lives so that we eventually defeat Covid-19.

A new series of "How To .." flower arranging videos to entertain, to inspire, to educate and remind ourselves of the beauty of this art.

These designs were created using available garden materials and everything we flower arrangers love to hoard, or using everyday objects in different, flower arranging, ways.

These flower arranging videos are for everyone who likes the idea of making floral designs at home, learning more about flower arranging or just being entertained.

Flower Arranging at Home - Design #3

Contemporary Flower Arranging - A video showing you How to .. Create a Posy Ring Table Arrangement with one block of floral foam.

Designed and Created by: Gill McGregor

 

Gill explains by this step by step “How to” video the most effective way of arranging a posy ring using as fewer materials as possible, so we can enjoy our plants both indoors and in our gardens.

 

Keep the central circle of foam for design #4 as you will find that it too can be used to make a very contemporary coffee table design.

 

We find this posy ring is a favourite with all and can be adapted greatly with additional accessories that you happen to have. Enjoy, keep safe and well.

 

We hope you enjoy watching these videos as much as Gill did making them; to help both entertain you during these times and to give you some ideas that you could arrange yourself.
