Make a Singapore orchid and gerbera centrepiece

PP Singapore orchid and gerbera centrepiece to make - Special-occasion flower arranging - Craft -

Singapore orchids are the cheapest orchids you can buy. They'll last for weeks, so you can transfer them to a vase if everything else has died.

Keep the oasis well watered so your display will last as long as possible.

You will need:

• pre-soaked half block Oasis
• plate
• scissors
• aspidistra leaves
• eucalyptus
• salal leaves
• 5 gerberas
• 3 roses
• 7 stems Singapore orchids
• beargrass

Step 1
Place the oasis in the centre of the plate. Push aspidistra leaves into either end and eucalyptus leaves into the top.

Step 2
Add salal leaves on top. Or use any other greenery you have in the garden to cut down on cost.

Step 3
Trim the gerberas, then push into the oasis in between the greenery. Trim the roses and add  towards the back of the arrangement.

Step 4 - above
Trim the orchids and push horizontally into the oasis at the base of the arrangement so that they fan out around the arrangement. Push strands of beargrass into the oasis to add height to the display.
