Rittners School Of Floral Design
In Boston Presents....
Topiary Tree #10
This topiary tree has some interesting features.
The same red, yellow and blue are used in this design as in Topiary #9, but the amount of yellow button poms has definitely been decreased. The result is the same color harmony but not quite as punchy....a more subdued final product....
Also notice the greater use of ribbon in this design. Small bows of light blue satin ribbon are randomly placed throughout the entire top section of the design....This also provides a very different texture and mood to the design.
Up to this point you have seen the center rod left alone, covered with a bow and showers of ribbon, covered with stems of dried materials, and even covered with moss.....In this design ribbon has been wrapped around the center plastic rod, to show but another way of handling that section of the design.
Here's a comparison of topiary nine and topiary ten:
