Slip a leaf into the gap between two glass containers to keep it upright... and add a plastic lining to support the flowers nestled into it.
Cut the Phalaenopsis orchid with a bit of green stem attached. This will make them last longer.

Stack two vases to create a small gap at the side to keep a leaf upright

Dutch floral designer Pim van den Akker, from Flower Factor invited me to participate in a FloraHolland initiative promoting the versatility of Freesias entitled ...
Freestyle Freesia design video for Flower Factor
Criss-cross corset style connect the gaps in a Monstera deliciosa leaf
This was the third design I did in my "I found it this way" floral art demonstration
The name Cymbidium or boat Orchid is derived from the Greek word Kumbos meaning "hole or cavity", referring to the hollowness in the base of the lip of the flowers.
