To start off the last week of class, we created a fan-shaped arrangement. These are often used for sympathy, because they convey a sense of comfort. All of the line elements lead into a focal point, with the whole design being centered. Overall, a very safe arrangement to make.
To end the class, though, we had free(ish) reign. We “ordered” our materials and came up with our designs completely on our own, with no guidance from our professor. Some people didn’t really have enough materials to make the centerpiece look full, so they were scrambling. Luckily, I was not one of those people.
Also luckily, I got white spider mums…which gave me the chance to paint them! That’s right, there’s spray paint specifically for flowers. The only downside? I still have some of the paint on the thumbnail of the hand I held the flowers in.
The purpose of this arrangement was to create something fun — whimsical, even — for a (fake) garden party. The lily grass crisscrossing the arrangement really helped, especially with the hot pink flowers and green button mums.
