Using a 16cm Oasis ring, cover
the base with a double layer of foil
and fold the foil into the ring.
This will prevent the ring from wetting
the table when it is moistened.
Place the candle in the centre of the
oasis ring. (Use a 4mm to 5mm
Use a variety of greenery, such as
Holly, Fern, Ivy and variegated Pittosporum.
The use of foliage adds life to the arrangement.
Begin with the darker foliage (Holly) making sure to bring it down over the edges of the tin foil.
Next, place Ivy tendrils in the oasis ring.
Then add the variegated Pittosporum.
Now place Eucalyptus pods (sprayed gold)
and intersperse a few small gold baubles.
Add 20 red roses with fairly short stems….
…. AND …
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year
