Fresh floral arrangement in a citrus lined vase:

Items you will need:

  • 2 Floral vase of your choice (2.5" square vase and a 5.5" square vase)
  • Flowers of your choice ( select flowers in season)
  • Floral pick ( or a bamboo skewer)
  • Fruits (oranges, lemons, lines, tangerines) -- cut into slices
  • Floral foam (soaked for 3 minutes)
Steps:
  • Clean your floral vase with soap and water
  • Add pre-soak foam into the 2.5" vase (cut the foam according to the size and shape of your vase)
  • Insert the 2.5" vase into the 5.5" vase
  • Slice the citrus of your choice
  • Add sliced citrus into the "inner" perimeter of the vase (between the 2.5" vase and the 5.5" vase). Make sure you cover the vase with the sliced citrus and tighten the gap so you cannot see the floral foam.
  • Take the flowers you selected and start to assemble them into the floral foam
  • Use the floral pick or bamboo skewers and insert stick into the fruit of your choice and add to the floral arrangement
Note: you can use apples, pears, grapes, berries in place of citrus fruits. Use your imagination and have fun!
