This small orchid arrangement has the same look as the X-LG orchid arrangement: http://www.floristinyou.com/x-lg-orchid The main difference is scale and weight. This small arrangement is perfect for an entryway, mantle, or piano. It uses only 1/5th of the flowers and small pebbles instead of river rocks, so it is not heavy like the X-LG arrangement. It is much less expensive to make than the X-LG arrangement, especially if you have to purchase the Cymbidiums. It is nice to know that you could create this arrangement with only one Cymbidium stem.
This arrangement pairs the orchids with some exotics: Green Ball Dianthus, Anthurium and Fiddlehead Fern. Green Ball Dianthus are in the same family as carnations. (If you look at the stem you will see it is jointed like a carnation stem.) They are fluffy balls grown in Ecuador and Columbia.
Anthurium in Greek means Tail Flower, which is one of its common names. Freshly cut Anthuriums can last up to 6 weeks. Fiddlehead Ferns used in flower arrangements are dark purple and are non-edible.
