How to prepare a floral foam flower arrangement




Instead of paying for expensive floral arrangements from florist, why not make one yourself. It is easy and very quick to make.



You will need: container,floral foam, fresh flowers,scissors



I found these lovely cup and saucer in the shop the other day and couldn't resits to buy, use different shape containers for your arrangements, experiment with them




Choose the floral foam for fresh flower, they come in different shapes and sizes



Check if it fits into the container, you can always cut it to make it fit in



Soak your floral foam for few minutes in cold water



While you waiting for the foam, get your fresh flowers, there is so many varieties, so use your imagination which kind to buy



Cut the stems



Next put your soaked foam inside the container



And now you can start placing your cut flowers into the foam



Try to not to leave any gaps between the flowers, place as many as you can, the fuller it is the better it looks


And that's it, done, very easy to make, remember to water it from time to time for the arrangement to stay lovely looking for longer
