All 3 looks amazing especially the first two. It looks very professional. So you’re an all-rounder, huh? Good work Annita! I wish I could do something like that. Please, please share this talent recipe too with us :)
Actually theres nothing like a recipe for that Rg,Just get some dry flowers from your surroundings and paste it on a cardboard according to your idea..And if you wish i can explain you some methods for drying flowers and leaves..
And many thanks for noticing those pictures..
Love your work with the dry flowers and the food. Would love to try out something with the dry arrangements myself. I am presently living in Mumbai, India.
Do you have any suggestions about how to go about this here. How do I dry the leaves and flowers and not have them crack and break apart and then glue them all on cardboard.
Thanks and keep going.
We are all enjoying this.
There are different ways by which you can dry the flowers,bhakti..What i normally do is hang the fresh flowers upside down in a cool and dark place for 2-3 weeks.Thus way you can retain the color of the flowers.Another way is to press them between books..there are some chemical processes also,which i’m not so sure about.they don’t crack very easily,so just be gentle to the flowers and then you can glue them neatly on the cardboard..
I was looking for a recipe of Chinese Fried Rice, without using Ajinomotto and came across your posts… its wonderful. And the best thing that attracted me is the pain you take to present it, thru a series of snaps. Excellent work.. !!!
I too have a similar kind of taste towards dry flowers. But i usualy fetch dry grass and paint them. I didn know the method of drying them. Can u suggest me more tips on the same ?
Just wanted to let you know that you’re such an inspiration! For those of us who are just learning to cook, leave alone traditional malayalee food – your blog is a treasure trove!
Do keep posting your recipes!!

If you can put some warnish it’ll be good..Also You can give colors to the flowers using spray paint ,if you wish.spray paints comes in many natural colors..you can buy it from walmart.but here i haven’t used anything on it.

Thank you for your sweet comments…and pls do visit my blog often..
I like your dry flower arrangements. Can your explain how u did the basket & snow with sticks how u did pls tell me.
Basket is made of ribbon…I used the ribbon and weaved it in the shape of a basket and place it on a cardboard.And the snow is made of white sand from Walmart….It is available in the crafts section…
Just spread the glue on the cardboard and sprinkle sand on it…
