In this edition of the Floral Perspective, we are pleased to introduce you to our next Mayesh Design Star finalist, Beth O’Reilly AIFD. Beth will show us a new design trend called “dipped in gold”. This look is created by taking things from around the shop and adding a new gold, glittery finish. The main course is a dipped in gold bridal bouquet that will make your bride sparkle with glee! Featured floral product: novelty carnations, Sahara roses, Camel roses, Camel Antique garden roses, Romantic roses, Cool Water roses, Sterling Silver roses, magnolia leaves, succulents and agonis.
Hard goods used: Design Master 24KT Pure Gold spray paint, goose feathers, Oasis aluminum wire in gold, Oasis igloo and gold containers from UCI.
Because I know you are going to ask, I did ask Beth about where all the bouquet bling came from and here is what she had to say:
As far as the bling….some are from Oasis and some from my private stash. I am always looking for things to add to my collection-and all the brooches were mine, but Oasis does have a great selection of brooches which would work just as well. The mega-beaded wire in ivory pearl was used on the bouquet along with the gold wires, 12 gauge, bullion and 24 gauge. The chain was from Oasis. The beaded sprays are something I made ahead of time from things I had. I glittered some Christmas sprays and added gold beads on the ends.
Enjoy the video! And remember, if you love it be sure to share Beth’s video with all of your floral friends because the views & viewer retention will count towards the contest! Stay tuned because next month, you will meet Tony Medlock AIFD our final designer competing to become our 2015 Mayesh Design Star!
Last, but not least I wanted to include a few pictures that show off all of the “dipped in gold” details:
