Sookey asked what a collar was...I made a collar with plant material.

Ivy, Russian vine, morning glory,jasmine and many other climbers are suitable to use.

This one was made using Ivy stems, you will need more than you think!

Make a circle by twisting and folding the stems around, you can use wire if you need to secure the stems.

I added some Raffia fill it out and for decoration. 4 wires were wrapped around the collar and joined in the centre,
this provides a handle to hold while you arrange the flower's into the collar.

Both are beautiful wreaths. I absolutely LOVE the variety of greens you have in the first wreath. The peach roses are gorgeous. I like the softness of the 2nd wreath. The conifer makes a delicate looking backdrop. Pretty pretty pretty! I want one for my front door!!!

I found that bunch of exotic flowers in a supermarket, but haven't seen any since. It was a Cape bouquet from South Africa. The roses are a beautiful colour I agree!

The most important part of making the wreath is putting the greenary in first, the inner layer is put in all

the same direction, then the outer layer goes in the opposite direction.

Welcome HGF,

Depends on what level of arranging you want to do. When I first graduated from college, I decided I wanted a career in floristry...so I found the best way to learn was apprenticing at a flowershop. I stayed there a little over a year wrapping plants and making rose and hospital arrangements. I learned a hierarchy existed, i.e., newbies never had a chance to do wedding flowers or party flowers or anything extremely creative. So I quit and am just arranging for fun. If you want a career in it, then my recommendation is to learn at a flowershop. If you'd like to arrange for fun, there are lots of books out there. I'm not sure which books are best. Maybe Terri can help. I'm no expert, but I learned a few things at the shop I can help you with. Don't be shy to ask questions! This is a great thread for learning...being called "workshop".

I also made a flower topiary thread here, if you'd like to visit. I know I'm putting a plug in for myself. :P http://davesgarden.com/community/forums/t/759660/

Hello HGF, and welcome !

Jane Packer has some good books, I like her simple instructions and her designs.
Floral magazines are good to see what the latest trends are, I get 'The flower arranger' and 'wedding flowers' also
'Flora' International.

Stick around here and join in with our themes, even if you don't have the floral mechanics (floral foam) etc,
Vases and baskets are great . We just love to see any flower arrangements here! We have threads to show your vases and containers, you can suggest themes, some are in the suggestion box. We even have a cafe where you can just hang out!

Hi everyone! I just put together a little "tutorial" using the last of my gerber daisies. I used a technique "gessiegail" had suggested at one point on this forum. I can't remember where she posted it. It involved taping the top of a square vase in a grid-like fashion to create 9 openings. You will need 9 gerber daisies or your choice of flowers, some foliage (not sure what it's called) like pittosporum, and a length of ribbon.

Variegated greens cut into the length of a spoon. You can leave it longer or cut it shorter depending on the height of your vase.

Place a cutting into each designated slot. Add more if you like it to look fuller. As you can see, they are not placed perfectly in position.

Then place a gerbera daisy or your choice of flowers on top of the greens. Finish off by wrapping ribbon around the vase. You can tie a knot or bow in the front if you like a little more detail to it. I'm more of a plain Jane.

I finished it off by using a few blades of bear grass: one end of the grass in one slot and the tips in another slot. I had taken off the ribbon before I decided to add the grass and was too tired to put it back on. You get the picture though, right? If none of this makes sense, please let me know. I don't mind answering any questions.

Terri, no foam in the vase. The tape is the only thing keeping the gerbers standing straight!

Sookey, yes, that's just plain tape. The tape I used wasn't completely translucent, but if you used clear tape, I bet it won't even show on the sides.

Stay tuned tomorrow for a very very very very easy arrangement I found in a Martha Stewart magazine using a household item I think everyone should have.

Very nice collection pupil. Yes, try the 9 square.

Disclaimer: The information provided below is intended for non-professional purposes only. It is not written in stone and may vary from person to person depending on his/her style. Suggestions given should not be taken against the advice of a professional florist. Have fun at your own risk. LOL!

Okay, starting small...love the cobalt blue bottles. Good size for a double "budvase". Can you try 2 flowers in it? Bright yellow roses or daisies would look pretty against the blue. In general, larger flowers should go at the base (makes a good focal point) and smaller ones like rose buds should be taller. Also for a container of that size, you don't want to use a flower that is too big like a sunflower.

Here's an example. I used a baby bottle for lack of container. Notice the tall greenery is about 1.5 times the height of the vase? That's sort of a general guide for beginners. I hope that was helpful. By no means am I an expert at this, so if it's not your taste, then you don't have to make exactly like that. I'll understand!

Karma, right up my alley. I love simplicity. I am dying for ya'll to start the paralell show. And guess what, we have had RAIN for two days. I didn't know I had this in the front yard, but there is a yellow rose bush about to burst with blooms. Now, when do I cut the larger more mature one and what do it use to extend the life of the flower? See, very novice, didn't even know we had a rose bush in the front yard until today. I found 4 more and several flowers.

Back to what I like. I ordered for my mother, on Mother's Day, a Susan B. Komen arrangement. She is a three year survivor. It was almost like a glass block, tinted pink. It had 4 pink tulips laying carelessly in it. It was beautiful. I love the new arrangements I see in short cubes and circles. Bunches of flowers in monocromatic colors. I also like contrast, of course in complimentary colors. I can't use purple and gold, because that reminds me of our high school and I would feel like I was decorating for the prom. What are some other complimentary colors. I love oranges and autumn colors. I love vivid and bright. And I love a wildflower look. Just a few of the things I love. LOL.

The coleus are sooo easy to root. They are the reason I started gardening. A neighbor gave me a cutting and over the last two months, I have given away 5 plants from it. It will soon be time to overwinter. As they are babies I just received from my wonderful girls in coleus, they are to young to cut. But come spring I should have oodles of them. I would gladly send some to you. Here is a pic of a few I have received.

These are babies, so they will get much larger.

Pupil, if you don't have an open rose and rose bud at the same time, just cut whatever roses are prettiest. To increase vase life, do so in the morning or evening when it's not terribly sunny or hot. Cut it as low as possible so you can have more stem to work with and submerge in water as soon as possible. Cut with a slant to produce more surface area for hydration. They also have flower preserve (those little packs that come with bought flowers) you can add to the water. I usually don't add any, but I do change out the water when it gets a little cloudy...almost every other day...but if you can, everyday would be ideal. Roses in general do not last very long. About a week or less. If you cut them when they're open buds, you may get longer vase life. Really tight buds may never open for you, and "very" open roses will fall apart in your vase within a day or so.

I like all the colors and styles you've described. Other complimentary colors can be: pink, purple, lavendar; cream, peach, yellow, and blue for "POP"; orange, red, yellow; for autumns: red, yellow, orange, amber, brown, etc. Different combination of colors can give entirely different effects. And you can't go wrong with monochromatics!

Thanks for the generous offer, but come spring/summer I can probably get coleus for a good price in those little pots. Coleus is so colorful, I wonder if it will last in a vase of water? It would make wonderful foliage for the flowers. Nice pics...thanks.

Yes Traci, you cut the roses to the height you want them in the arrangement.
As Karma said, I cut longer stems of the foliage to fill in the gaps.
I find in some ways baskets are harder to do than using other types of containers, your arrangement has to 'fit' within
the basket, although these rules are not always important to me!.

Roses cut at a slant to fit into foam easier...

Wow, PG, you've got it all set up! It looks pretty stuffed in there. We are 75 degrees down here, and I'm not even sure what to do with my tropicals yet. Have you looked into getting the dwarf birds of paradise?

Most of the ones here that I've seen are dwarf ones. I have a big bird of paradise, but it has only two leaves so far. Bought it for $6 at a moving sale.

WOW! I love this site. Just joined Dave's Garden this weekend. I had no idea what was here. Hickoryglenfarm asked about learning about floral arranging. I'm taking classes at my local community college in their Horticulture Dept. and Continuing Ed program. I've learned a lot and will take more this spring. Cost is reasonable and you get the instruction and materials. At the holidays, I made a door swag (plus 3 more for family), 2 floral arrangements in class (plus 10 more for family) and a boxwood tip Christmas tree that is still fresh. Your ideas in this forum are wonderful! I'll be trying them myself. Thanks, everyone! Linda

Hi Linda! I don't have any formal (school) training, but learned a lot while I was working in the floral shop. Will you show us your christmas swags/arrangements? We would love to see them. You'll find more of us hiding in the flowerpot cafe. Come join us! http://davesgarden.com/community/forums/t/804140/

Thanks for the welcome. Another class I'm going to be taking is how to use a digital camera and upload pictures. Once I do this, I'll be glad to share any arrangements I make. If the boxwood Christmas tree is still good, I'll get a shot of that, too. I'll check out your chats in the Flowerpot Cafe, too. Thanks.
