Living Basket Funeral Tribute

Living Basket Funeral Tribute with Plants

Time: 12 minutes, 49 seconds | Season: Spring

Approx. Wholesale Cost: £15-20 + labour mark up and delivery (adapt to size and brief)

In this demonstration, our tutor illustrates how you can use plants within a funeral tribute. Although, the design is relatively simplistic, it is incredibly effective. The design adopts eco-friendly alternatives that can be employed in your floristry portfolio with a view for the plants to be removed from the tribute and re-planted to remember the deceased.

Spring is a great time of year to create this style of arrangement, using bulbs, trailing ivy, herbs and pansies within the composition creates instant colour and fragrance to the design.
