Last week, you received a first look into the possibilities of The Art of Flowers contest boxes with our post of Beth O’Reilly’s great floral designs. Today, we are sharing with you floral art created by Steven Santos, another one of our Mayesh Design Star finalists, with boxes filled with the very same floral content. And as you can see, Steven came up with flower arrangements that have a totally different look and feel! I love it!
The top image is created out of the Exotic box that contains the following wholesale flowers: 5st Mokara Dendro, 1st Mini Cymbidium, 10st Mini Calla, 1bu Horsetail, 1bu Ti Leaves, 5st Umbrella Fern, 3st Ginger.
The bottom image contents are from the Garden box that consists of: 3st Succulents, 1bu Dusty Miller, 1bu Curly Willow Tips, 12st Roses, 5st Green Ball Dianthus, 1bu Ivy green, 1bu Lily Grass, and 1bu Galax.
Here are a few words from Steven about his wonderful designs:
I thought the items that came in the box were beautiful! The colors just popped. I love the color combination of green, pink, and the silvery grey.
I’ve had that window box in the shop for months and I have been waiting to use it. When I saw the contents of the Garden Box, I knew exactly what container I wanted to use. To get the succulents to stand up and be raised, I built up floral foam and used small pins to secure them to the foam. This allows them to be seen and still be hydrated.
Finding a container for the tropical box was a little more difficult for me. I searched and searched my shop, until packed away in a box, was the container I used. It is actually a candle holder.
I sprayed my callas purple to match the Mokara Dendros. The colors of the tropical box reminded me of Tropical Sea Coral. I warmed up my calla stems so they were malleable and I used corsage pins to secure them to the container. I also inserted wire into the horse tail so I could make the zig-zag look that it has.
