Circular Wreath Tribute

Seasonal Circular Wreath Funeral Tribute

Time: 23 minutes | Season: All Year Round

For this tutorial, I will be illustrating to you how to create a circular wreath tribute that can be positioned onto a stand. 

There are a number of different funeral flower arrangements available to offer your clients. Funeral wreaths are one of the most popular, especially for close friends and relatives as the circular shape represents the eternal cycle of life; no beginning or end. It is important when discussing the designs with your customer, to be patient and guide them towards the perfect design based on the deceased individuality and personality. 

Throughout the tutorial I will be sharing invaluable skills such as grouping and caging that can be adapted within your compositions for funeral designs and other disciplines in floristry. 

Tips: Depending on your clients brief, you could evenly space the flowers within the design. There are lots of types of greenery that you can use within the design. Foliage that is available all year round is cost effective, long lasting and available from most wholesalers. You could look at Leatherleaf, Fatsia (otherwise known as Aralia), Galax leaves or Anthurium Leaves.

If you would like to recreate this design, you will need the following:

QuantityEquipment / Plant Materials
1 pair Scissors AND secateurs
1 Bio Foam Ring 12-14″
1 bunch Aspidistra Leaves
1 bunch Fatsia Leaves (small)
15 stems Carnation Red (or alternative)
1 pack Green stub wire
1 bunch Bear grass
