Like the previous design, this one has been made in an unusual container - this time a tin can! The can has a lovely shiny silver finish with an attractive ribbed pattern around the centre. I've placed it inside an aluminium food tray, which matches the shiny silver finish of the can. I've used floral foam in the tin can and the tray, and the flowers used are white roses, green spray carnations and white Waxflower (Chamelaucium uncinatum), with the foliage of Hedera colchica variegata, Hedera helix, Senecio laxifolius "Le Roi" (a lovely grey-green foliage with wavy edges and a silver underside), and Fatsia japonica variegata. I've also added some twisting branches of silver-sprayed Salix matsudana tortuosa (Tortured Willow), to reflect the silver colouring of the container.
