In this tutorial, our tutor will be demonstrating to you how to create an attractive flower arrangement for any occasion. This design is known as a downward crescent curvilinear arrangement. On this occasion, we will be sharing with you how to create the design front facing.

This graceful design uses a small amount of plant materials that looks most effective positioned on a tall container. It is very important to use loose, flexible flowers and foliage that create the crescent shape, otherwise the design will appear too rigid and inflexible in its form.

If you wish to recreate the design, you will need the following plant materials and equipment:

    I just love the design and how it is large yet uses a minimal amount of flowers making it a less expensive design than a large church arrangement.
    Thank you for demonstrating this.
