And here’s how to do it!
D I R E C T I O N S
- Soak a caged floral foam brick in water until it sinks, this will ensure it has absorbed enough water to keep your flowers hydrated
- Snip the stems of your Nageia Nagi into smaller pieces of greenery
- Poke the greens through the foam on either side of the cage, continue doing this until the cage appears lush on either side
- Cut the stem of a Rose Free Spirit down to 2 inches, poke it through the center of the floral foam. Surround it with two more roses.
- Trim the stem of Rose Topaz down to 2 inches, poke it through the floral foam behind the Free Spirit Roses for contrast. Fill in with a few more Topaz Roses.
- Now fill in the space between roses using the Peach and Burgundy Carnations, don’t forget to snip the stems down and alternate between the two colors.
- Continue filling up the foam with roses and carnations, spreading out the different colors and keeping the corner shape in mind. You might need to wire some of the flowers on the outer corners for a cascading effect.
- Once your arch corner appears full and lush, mount it onto your arch!
