Then add the two long stalks of New Zealand flax. Place one straight up and one close to the first but fanned out a bit. 6 | The dried pieces—the seedpods and dyed wild grasses—are placed last. They are the most delicate, and they add interesting color and another dimension to the composition. 4 | Take three carnations and cut the stem of one very short; position it at the base of the arrangement. Keep the other stems longer, placing one straight up and another with a slightly shorter stem at an angle. 1 | Select a shallow container for this vertical arrangement. Take a strip of floral adhesive clay, fold it, and secure it to the bottom of the floral frog. Place the frog in the center of the vessel, and add water. 5 | Add a couple of begonia leaves to the base. These fill in any blank spots while adding texture. Place the marigolds throughout the lower part of the arrangement at various angles, but don't overcrowd; give them space. 3 | Insert the orchids low at the base, letting one stem drape over the side of the vessel to make the arrange- ment more dynamic. I wanted to create something that was inspired by the changing season and colors of autumn but not dictated by them. —TAYLOR PATTERSON For more information, see Sources, page 84
