leaf cuttings from some bulbs (30 - 33 inches)

Rated: Intermediate Arrangement
This contemporary arrangement is made in a wide glass block vase. River rock visually anchors the flowers. I used the leaves from some bulbs I had growing in the front yard, so there would be something going on around the center of the vase. I just went out and snipped them. You could use Bear Grass if you don’t want to give your bulbs a hair cut, but frankly cutting the bulb leaves was easier than making another trip to the store, so voila. There they are. Don’t tell anyone.
The flowers are grouped in bunches, like they would be in a garden with the purple anemones to the left. The Protea is a little higher than the flowers around it. It is surrounded by fancy pink Gerbers and Charmelia (the flower that lasts 3 weeks) to the right. In fact you might want to buy an extra bunch of the Charmelia so when the other flowers go, you can fill the vase with the Charmelias. Haha, that’s what I did. O.K. now that you have all my true confessions, let’s go to work.
