According to feng shui masters, all plants emit an invisible positive vibe, the so-called universal, life-giving energy 'chi'. Its uninterrupted flow makes us feel good, we feel healthy and calm, and we just want to live! The energy from flowers is not a myth, so let's take advantage of their benefits because they are floating in the air.
Simply Calla Designs
The three designs you see in my blog are created using zantedeschia flowers sponsored by Simply Calla in collaboration with the international florist portal Thursd.
1. Calla Design 'Energy'
This arrangement is a loose interpretation of floral energy.
For the arrangement, I used metal vases, to which I attached a construction made of willow shoots gathered together a few and wrapped with wire. This resulted in a more stable structure.
The flowers were placed in a floristic sponge and in vials. The whole arrangement gave the impression of swirling shoots to reflect the character and vision of the flow of floral energy.
I noticed that the flowers were full of strong colors. Callas come in many colors, from light pink through fiery orange to calm, and dark eggplant/chocolate colors. The colors were highlighted by multi-colored leaves of philodendrons and monstera, as well as rose and dahlia flowers.
2. The Calla Bouquet
During the 2nd Flower Festival in Czarnków, the invited florists also participated in a flower show. Everyone presented a different, interesting floristic work.
I created a bouquet based on dried plants and plants that can be found in the meadow. The main characters were zantedeschia flowers in a light pink color.
There were heavy contrasts shown in the bouquet that contained flowers from the meadow in combination with noble plants such as calla, rose, and phalaenopsis. The flowers were graded on different levels so as to interest the recipient with what might be less visible and hidden.
Despite the rainy weather, a big audience turned up right before the show, and the florists' presentation was well received.
3. Chandelier by Katarzyna Rduch
My fellow floral designer Katrzyna Rduch made the third calla design. These are her words on this design:
The chandelier, associated with home, brings back childhood memories, where the dim light of lamps covered with a lampshade gave a sense of security and was conducive to evening talks with the family. I wanted my flower installation to recall these images, to encourage reflection on the quality of our interpersonal relationships, to invite you to make yourself at home in the light of the chandelier and notice another person, talk with him about flowers, the past, anything...
To create the installation, I used callas, which with their long stems perfectly outlined the desired shape for me, and their stem-shaped inflorescences hang slightly like individual points of light.
My inspiration was an old lamp found in a garbage can, which became the main structure of the entire installation.
