Three Designs for HydrangeaWorld
Hanneke made three wonderful designs for HydrangeaWorld
to show the beauty of this grand flower at its finest. Just sit back, enjoy, and get inspired by these wonderful displays of Hanneke's work.
Hanneke Frankema: "This fan contains many beautiful hydrangea balls! The base is made of brown thick aluminum wire. The stems of the hydrangeas are very beautiful in this fan. It also gives this bouquet a lot of firmness! The flowers are deliberately only found at the top for a nice contrast.
Beautiful talinum Long John
stems can be found between the stems. Furthermore - to create depth - tendrils, caladium leaves, and phalaenopsis flowers have been incorporated. A nice detail is the wooden flowers that grow around the bouquet, as it were. These also give a lot of depth and character to the bouquet."
Hanneke Frankema: "This is a disc bouquet with a frame underneath too! Fresh green with white! Also with beautiful tendrils and caladium leaf for depth and contrast next to the hydrangea! As a detail, I have processed beautiful curls of flat green aluminum wire!
I found the quality of the hydrangeas especially striking! They were all super long! Nice full compact balls and sturdy stems! Lots of diversity, so it was a real joy to work with!"
