Tropical Arrangement DIY Tutorial
HOW TO MAKE A TROPICAL ARRANGEMENT SING FAUX FLOWERS
Select your ingredients and lay out so that they are easily accessible
We used the following:
Arrange the greenery to create the base outline for your arrangement, bending the stems at the bottom to the correct height.
The real touch philodendron leaf goes in the back to define the height. Next add the artificial fern leaves spray makeing sure the leaves are opened to a star shape and positioned low to conceal the nexk of the vase. The cheese plant leaf should be bent forward and down at the front of the display and finally add the artificial parlour palm leaf to add body.
Add the flowers into the arrangement.
Start with white hibiscus to the left of the arrangement, spreading the flowers apart in a triangular shape. Then add the pink hibiscus to the centre of the display, again spreading the flowers in a triangular shape. Place the 3 yellow hibiscus in a horizontal line around the righthand side of the arrangement. When placing the hibiscus take care to ensure none of the flowers touch each other.
Finally add both of the heliconia. One to the right in front of the philodendron leaf and one to the left so that the 2 flowers form an elongated V shape.
Place your arrangement in pride of place and enjoy!
