Covent Garden Flower Academy / 5

Day 6 and it was all about candles. We were given a demonstration during which we learned about candles cups, the mechanics of how to fix them to differing types of candle holders, everything from candelabras to champagne bottles, and how to safely a securely fix oasis within them and then the candle within the oasis ready for the arrangement.

We then all choose a different cantle holder from a wide selection on the table, attached our candle cups and oasis and proceeded to create an arrangement that would be in keeping with it. We yet again had a wonderful selection of blooms and foliage to work with, ivy, both trailing ad berried, eucalyptus, both green and burgundy, tea roses, rose buds, leather leaf, and lemon balm, and baby tulips were what I decided to use.
