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.

Designed and Created by: Gill McGregor


Gill explains by this step by step “How to” video using the same sculptured floral foam utilized in design #1 to make a circular puffed Cordyline cushion with a central floral spray. In case you have not seen the first video, Gill will demonstrate this floral foam construction to assist in the making of this distinctive design.


As we stay at home to save lives, we hope this video will inspire you to arrange this design, thus bringing a little bit of your garden into your home, so we can enjoy nature indoors as well as through our windows.


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.
