Floral Arrangement

Getting started.......

A small Swiss Army knife or retractable knife is the most important and useful tool for arranging flowers.

Pruning clippers
Garden clippers are useful for cutting thick branches and trimming the stems of a finished bouquet.

Floral foam
Use floral foam to hold the stems of the flowers in place (soak the foam in water first). Floral foam also holds water so that flowers can continue to draw the water after you arrange them. A popular floral foam is Oasis.

Strapping tape
Use this heavy tape for countless tasks, including securing floral foam to containers.

Floral preservative
Many florists provide small packets of flower food or preservative with their flowers. This product prevents the growth of bacteria and helps flowers last longer.
