14 Bewitching Halloween Arrangements with Midnight Foam
October 16, 2018 

Vampires wear it. Bats, cats and spiders can be it. Authentic witches’ cauldrons only come in it.

But as the 14 elegant designs here clearly show, the black in Midnight Floral Foam is more delightful than frightful when it comes to creating Halloween floral designs.

Why black foam for your Halloween (and fall) floral designs?

As Sharon OASIS Floral Design Director Sharon McGukin writes in this week's IDEA Weekly blog, you can create visual depth with black foam. You can also use Midnight foam as a design element without adding time and materials to wrap, spray or cover green foam. 

And …

Black is Elegant
Think of Midnight as the little black dress of floral foam. While green foam is still the workhorse, black foam takes designs upscale. You’re not going to wear it everywhere, but everyone should have it in their repertoire.

And black and Halloween go together like pretty and flowers.

To help you bewitch your prospects, see the 14 Halloween and fall designs using Midnight, six of them with recipes, along with floral mechanics tips in this week's blog.
