Rittners School Of Floral Design
In Boston Presents....
Topiary Tree #1
This is a very effective example of a dried topiary tree. Notice that the straw flowers or helichrysum are very prominent in this design in a pink color. This contrasts quite nicely with the red bunny tails, dried statice and blue and orange dried materials.
The rod holding up the styrofoam ball is a plastic one, but you normally wouldn't even be aware of that. In this design stems that have been cut from the other dried materials were bundled and tied around the plastic rod, giving a very natural effect.
Notice the combination of sheet and spanish moss at the baseline. A small artificial bird along with a sprig of dried material provide an interesting counter point.
