The idea behind this design is to use an unusual container, so I've used a Yorkshire Pudding baking tin! This has four compartments (for the Yorkshire Puddings!), and has a nice neutral grey metallic finish. I've used floral foam in two of the compartments, with some orange sisal to hide the mechanics, and made two arrangements which are linked with orange-brown dried reeds, forming a strong visual line across the tin. Both arrangements have the same flowers and foliage - orange mini Gerberas, lime green spray Carnations, Hedera (Ivy) leaves, Buxus sempervirens (Box) and Cupressus. The two arrangements are also linked across the centre with a loop of Bear Grass. Finally, I've added some black polished pebbles in the other two compartments, to add visual interest and texture. The design is made to be viewed from above.
