You can not overlook this red sea by Annemie Duchateau and Frerenc Kruzslicz made with only 3 different flowers! It is shown during the Alden Biesen flower arrangement happening in this beautiful complex of castles in Belgium.
The elongated table was covered with a black glittering table-cloth on top of which red strips of organza were put. The designers put bowls with oasis in them on the table and this bowls were filled with 3 kind of flowers, namely Anthurium flowers (Morano®), Roses (Red Naomi!) and Hydrangeas.
I really love dark red roses because they have such a rich radiation. Especially the Red Naomi! is one of my favourites, because of its velvet leaves. Further, I adore the flower Morano® because of its glow. This is a perfect combination in one festive arrangement of two beautiful flowers.
Between the flowers you could find balls of polystyrene foam with different kinds of leaves. By means of a lot of pins the leaves were put on the balls imbricately. Also pearls and rotan ornaments were glued onto small pins and stung between the flowers in order to lighten it all up. Around the table piece gold leaves were put in order to emphasize the festivity. The combination of colours in this master piece was definitively inspired by the East. Finally, big lamps provided for an optimal lighting.
Annemie Duchateau is already the third generation florist and according to her the basis of flower arranging always remains the same. However, she says, the quality of the flowers improved strongly the past years. The choice for the flowers of this arrangement was easy, because both Morano® and Red Naomi! guarantee a long vase life.
