Save on supplies

For very tall containers and opaque vases, rather than filling the entire height with floral foam, fill the bottom with chicken wire, packing peanuts or other filler. Place a small plastic liner atop the filler and use this to hold your floral foam. You’ll get the same wow-worthy impact with your floral arrangement, but you won’t be wasting excess floral foam.


Flower Classroom

~ Adding a small zip lock bag of sand will give additional weight to the tall vessel and floral design atop.

~ Flowers love water…so don't rule out just filling your vessel with water and then a chicken wire structure to design thru for stabilized stem placement.

~ If this is a delivery to a client add care intstructions specific to the design structure…your customer will be greatful for the proper care and handling of the FLOWERS.

~It's not just about saving on supplies….but creating a beautiful design with all the right mechanics!!!
