Oasis idea Weekly

March 26, 2019
Why and How to Glue Prom and Other Flowers
Why glue prom or any flowers? Which glue to use? What steps improve gluing? And what shouldn’t you try with glue?

This week we address just about every aspect of gluing flowers, updating one of our most popular topics. 

Gluing creates lightweight designs, can be done quickly and is easy on the hands—all provided you choose the right glue and prepare your materials for success.

Of course, what works for securing fresh flowers and decorative materials in prom designs also works for everything occasion: party, homecoming, wedding and other floral arrangements.

Discover how to make gluing work for your designs in this IDEA Weekly blog from Smithers-Oasis Design Director Sharon McGukin AIFD, AAF, PFCI.
