Besides the colourful gerberas the cubes are the focal points of these arrangements. It is best to decorate your cubes with different materials. In this series we used 3 different cube decorations: 2x skelleton leaves, 1x abaca and 1x aspidistra leaves with metallic wire.The acrylic cubes are a smart alternative to glassware, with benefits of being lighter and safer.
Stick the leaves with the two toned bullion wire at the foam until the foam is covered. Place the covered foam in the acrylic cube.
Cut off the stems of the aspidistra and secure the leaves with gold coloured metallic wire. Use a lot of this wire. The other piece of floral foam can be covered with a fashionable colour of Abaca material.Also these two covered pieces of floral foam can be placed in the cubes.
In these small arrangements, it is advisable to use first class gerberas, as they are the focal points. I really like this red mini gerbera Suri®. She has a wonderful bright colour and an amazing vaselife. Due to the good quality gerberas your customer can enjoy four in a row for up to a fortnight. Adding some berries and foliage fills the foam nicely.
To finish this cube, I use a new material, the bendy Midelino sticks. They add a joyful feeling to this little arrangement
One of these little arrangements is maybe not enough, but four in a row have a smashing effect!
