Silks and Live Floral at the Atrium
BYU-Idaho Winter 2014 Annual Floral and Bridal Show. We did a "Days of Creation" fashion show.
I call this arrangement "Walk in the Country." I built it as a freshman in college as my final design project for my floral arranging course. It is displayed in my father's office back home. Being the small town country girl I was raised as, I designed this work of art to reflect the love I have for the wide open spaces. The porcelain boot vase is representative of a presence in nature. I used pussy willow and some wild berry twigs to represent the rugged beauty of the outdoors, and I used wildflowers and greens to represent the peaceful serenity that the country offers.
I created this floral arrangement for my grandfather's funeral. Grandpa Murphey loved the outdoors and is a native Idahoan. To represent who he was, I used Saringa (the Idaho state flower), pine trees (because he loved camping), and greens from my family farm that represented his life as a farmer.
These floral arrangements below I created while taking a flower arranging class at BYU-Idaho as a freshman.
As a freshman in college, I came home for summer break and my cousin had some last minute cancellations for his wedding. His fiance asked me 6 days before the wedding if I would help out with budget silk flowers during crunch time. I built these arrangements for her using vases we found at a second hand store, and flowers from a dollar store. Total cost of everything was under $25. Jake and MaKayla had a beautiful day.
I did these voluntarily for a local LDS YSA group's country dance. I just took sunflowers from my driveway and other plants that I had on the farm and made these up really quick.
I made this as a sophomore in college as a Christmas gift for my mom. a mirror, glass vase, and candles brought the classy look I was shooting for into play. Once again, these are dollar store flowers that I manipulated shapes, textures, and such with because I was a college student on a budget but wanted this to be beautiful. My mom loved it. She cried when she opened the large box full of protective stuffing and found this table centerpiece inside.
