For a container, I have chosen a scalloped pewter bowl that will look great filled with cedar and blue berry
juniper for greens! The empty container measures nine and one half inches wide and two and one half inches
I used two pieces of blue berry juniper and three large branches of cedar cut into multiple pieces for greens.
For tools, I used a pair of floral clippers to cut the greens. To cut the ribbon, I used a pair of sharp scissors.
I used the wire cutter to create a longer stem for each glitter berry section and covered the wire with brown floral tape to mimic a real steam.
The design does require a piece of floral foam, so I used the clear narrow tape to secure the foam to the edges of the pewter bowl. Once the foam is firmly secured to the bowl, I’m ready to begin the design. It is somewhat three sided and is more suitable as a buffet decoration or a fireplace mantle.
Amongst the greens, I created a focal point using two large pine cones, and several stems of the faux glitter berry, plus the ivory satin ribbon.
The finished height is ten inches and the finished width is seventeen inches. I hope you will be inspired to create a silvery floral arrangement for the new year!
