Video: Ultraviolet Basket

Orders Pioneer - Monday, June 25, 2018

Video Summary written for Pioneer Imports & Wholesale by:  Lisa B.


Learn how to create a vibrant garden basket using 2018’s Pantone Color of the Year with this quick time-lapse video demonstration by Vonda LaFever AIFD, PFCI, CFD. 


Vonda begins with a round triple weave basket and two types of ribbon cut into lengths of 6-8” inches. She ties these lengths around the basket handle, alternating between the double-faced satin ribbon in purple haze and the pirouette ribbon in purple. 

With the basket handle covered, Vonda beings placing silk lavender bush sprays into a block of floral foam hidden within the basket. She centers these tall pieces in the middle to give the arrangement a sense of height and drama. Occasionally, you will see her slightly bend and adjust the stems for a balanced look. 


Silk peony and silk hydrangea blossoms fill in the perimeter of the basket, easily obscuring the rest of the floral foam below. 

The result is a lovely centerpiece that spans a range of purple hues that closely echo Pantone ultraviolet. Serving as a fun way to add color to an event – regardless of season – this arrangement is sure to spark the enthusiasm of your customers and clients who love purple color palettes.

 

The supplies used in this arrangement are readily available from the Pioneer Imports & Wholesale catalog, along with a wide variety of coordinated details to help you create custom arrangements your customers are sure to love. Explore the Pioneer Imports & Wholesale catalog to find silk flowers, wholesale ribbon, and other accessories in a spectrum of hues to suit any occasion.
