Capel Manor College’s floral web design was inspired by the intricate work of a spider and the woven elements of a spider’s web. The free standing 3D design includes a combination of white flowers, such as Orchids and Kalenchoe, complemented with trailing vines, succulents and other foliage material to create a netted effect. The design incorporates wooden log slices, Spanish moss trails and crystal beads.
