Wedding Banquet of Flowers

Wedding Bank of Flowers (per 1m)

Time: 30 minutes and 16 seconds

In this demonstration, you will learn how to make a massed bank flower design for a top table or in the centre of a trestle table for a wedding or event. For this tutorial, our tutor will demonstrate how to create 1m which can be replicated to create a longer design.

This design could be made up in any palette and a variety of different flower varieties to achieve a similar massed style.

In this video, you will need to recreate:

3 stems of Hydrangea
3 stems ofGypsophila
5 stems of Double Freesia
3 stems of Spray Rose
1 stem of Phalaenopsis Orchid
2 stems of Dendrobium Orchid
3 stems of Rose
3 stems of Double Lisianthus
1 bunch of Eucalyptus Cinerea
1 pair of Sharp Scissors and/or Secateurs
1 Triple Spray Tray
1 Long Bladed Knife
2 bricks of Floral Foam
1 roll of Anchor Tape 12mm

    A beautiful design but from my experience hydrangeas don’t last in foam – how long would you expect them to stay alive without wilting?

      Hello Jane,

      Thank you for your comment and watching the video. Hydrangea are known for their unpredictability, but I would expect the design to last between 2-5 days. Depending on the ambient temperatures, how well the hydrangeas have been conditioned and how they are maintained once they are in the design.

      I hope this helps

    Hi Debbie and Laura, wow this is stunning. May I ask how much yo would charge for this type of arrangement?

    • Laura Kenny on 16/06/2022 at 4:32 pm

      Thank you for your comment Julia. It would very much depend on your customer base, the type of flowers, time of year and time involved. I would expect this to cost between £80-£150. I hope this helps

        Hi Laura. thank you kindly for your response :)) is this the cost of the flowers, mechanics etc.. used on this particular design or would this be the price to charge a client?

        • Laura Kenny on 13/07/2022 at 4:17 pm

          Hello Julia, thank you for your response. This is an estimated costing for the client, however this can vary depending on the flower types, mechanics used, your customer base, location etc. I would recommend to refer to a past Q&A on Pricing Structures that can be found on the website here

      Thank you for your comment Isabel. I’m glad you enjoyed this video. In my opinion, a white and green palette provides a classic design and is always in style!
