A leaf-covered heart card lends fashionable flair to a traditional half-dozen roses bouquet.
Vases with pendants or other decorative accessories are a hot trend and a great shop special option, adding value and fun appeal to floral compositions. Here, a heart-shaped foliage-covered pendant, simply attached with a wrapping of bind wire, adorns a plain red glass vase. The heart, which is created by gluing variegated Pittosporum leaves to a cardstock cutout, acts as a charming value-added decorative accessory. A classic bouquet of six roses, six stems of Hypericum and additional Pittosporum can be arranged quickly to complete the composition.
