Funeral Sheaf in Autumnal Colour Palette
Time: 21 minutes and 30 seconds | Season: All Year round
Approx wholesale cost: £15-30 depending on the type of flowers and size of design
In this video demonstration, our tutorial will demonstrate how to create a funeral sheaf using an autumnal colour palette. The name sheaf derives from a sheaf of corn. It is an informal design and can be either modern in its presentation or traditional depending on the plant materials selected. It is the perfect choice for a green burial providing decomposable products are used to create the bow or tying point such as raffia etc.
The spray is a teardrop design, usually arranged in a medium such as floral foam, moss, agra wool etc. The sheaf is a tied bouquet.
When in profile, the focal blooms should be at the highest point. This is achieved by layering and spiralling the stems. Although this design appears simple, it is important to apply the basic construction rules to achieve a well balanced and proportionate design that will withstand handling and transportation.
