Mayesh Design Star: Ceremony Arch


(uplifting music) – Hi everyone, my name is Kaylee Young, and I’m the 2018 Mayesh Design Star. Today, I’m going to be teaching you how to build an arch. It’s a series of simple steps, and you can use whatever
product that you like. Today, I’ve been using a
lot of product from Naniwa, which is this amazing Japanese grower. Today, I’m going to be using some spirea, ranunculus, butterfly ranunculus, eucalyptus, and acacia foliage. Also, I will be using roses. I started with foam,
so I have cages of foam that are soaked in water,
and I’ve zip-tied them to the arch, physically is I’ve tied them to the archway so that they’re stable and in place, and then I’ve also zip-tied them in additional places, more than one place so that the cage won’t fall or that the foam won’t fall out of the cage onto the ground. And then, I’ve also used some wire to wire some of the cages to the archway. And I feel, as soon as everything feels sturdy, that’s when I feel confident. And depending on what kind of product you’re using, I’m using
pretty light products so I feel like I can get
away with not zip-tying it maybe as much as I could if I was doing something a little bit fuller. So after zip-tie and oasis, then I’m gonna start with greenery,
and I’m just gonna start by building a shape. (uplifting music) I’m using the spirea in a way that its movement allows for
shape all the way around. It’s kind of giving me structure, and then I’m gonna fill
in with other greenery. I’m gonna add roses on top,
I’m gonna add ranunculus on top of that, and I’m just gonna layer everything and make sure to add a lot of dimension, so that when you see the archway all around, it looks beautiful from every side. (uplifting music) I had a lot of fun doing this, thanks so much for watching the video, and I hope to see you guys out on tour. (uplifting music)
