Mission accomplished!

The overall design - minus the picture on the left
The Eiffel blooming
the candles are lit
the flowers are ready and stand on their own

and finishing touches

It's taken me over a week to post this post. I guess with all the time and effort it was all worth it. Our final display! It is hard to believe that a year's efforts are showcased at last. There was a lot of planning and market visits and panicking about the time restraints but it was completed and I was really happy with the results.
We worked for three hours - no less no more and this included conditioning the flowers and the designs. The wired work needed 50 units!
I have finally come to the end of my journey and fulfilled one of my life's dreams which was to become a fully qualified florist. I am now minus the certificates as we don't get those until next year. Still I know I have done it and achieved something for me.
Tomorrow after two weeks break I go back to work in my village florist and you know...I love it. x
