Leaves and Foliage - Why do you use them?
Foliage (leaves) make flowers complete, take a really good look at nature as beautiful flowers are highlighted by branches, stems, floral scents and leaves or foliage Flowers without leaves (foliage) are not complete; they enhance the flowers, giving a lovely backdrop for blooms, buds or bouquets. Variations in leaf coloring, shape, size are plentiful. Leaves can even stand alone on cakes and are easier and faster to create than flowers. Why make leaves?
Flower of the Month! Daisy
- Fill in empty spaces, create a natural look, and conceal flower breakage.
- Easier and faster to make than a complete flower.
- Come in many shapes, sizes and colors giving decorators choices.
- Can be curled; the edges can be straight, variedated, dented, serrated or lobed; giving the decorator abundant options to choose from.
- Leaves or vines give your flowers a sense of movement and on a cake allows for continuity from layer to layer.
- Allows for artistic license to make the size of leaves as appropriate for smaller cakes.
- Permit the main color that is used in the flower to lightly dust the leaves so that they naturally blend together.
