circle of love

Pretty callas, fringy petals and decorative wire
embody the union of romance and sophistication.

Circles and spheres symbolize
eternity, so arrangements that
incorporate them are inherently
romantic. In this design, miniature
callas are arranged in a circle, with
the ends of the stems hidden to
give the illusion of a never-ending
loop. In the center of the circle, a
bowl of carnation petals is tied to
the rest of the design by a spiral of
ornamental flat wire while addi-
tional flat wire accents the callas
inside the larger bowl.

MATERIALS: Miniature callas, carnation
petals, two bubble bowls, flat wire.
