Flower Arranging at Home - Design #1
How to.. Create a Puffed Cordyline Contemporary Table Arrangement
Gill takes you through the steps to turn a single block of floral foam and sculptures it to achieve a stunning table design. More amazing is how Gill uses this same sculptured floral foam to create a completely different shaped design â€“ reusing the same floral foam â€“ in the next video!
While so many of us have to stay socially isolated.
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.
