As the wedding season unfolds into full swing we can’t help but look at our faux flowers and think how perfect they are for wedding decoration. As wedding styling becomes more and more elaborate, fauxs offer limitless flexibility to create show stopping installations that don’t die in summer heat.
For this month, we’ve created a series of four pieces to show case the pretty of our florals, as a group they would grace any English country wedding with ease. Or you can take these and use them individually in your home.
1, Using a sharp knife cut a cube of oasis and sit it inside the chosen vase or that sits perfectly atop the candle holder. It does not want to stick out, but should be tall enough to come near the top.
2, Secure the oasis in place using two pieces of pot tape, criss crossed across the top of the oasis and secure onto the holder (if using the candle holder).
3, Using the wire cutters, cut the flower heads leaving approx. two inches of stem.
4, For any larger hydrangea heads, these can be cut down into smaller piece, but be careful to ensure there is enough stem length to push into the oasis.
5, Cut off any leaves, or protrusions from the stem which may stop it going into the oasis.
6, Push the stems into the oasis. Build the shape with the hydrangea and then insert the roses at pleasing intervals.
