Decorate the Brew . . .
An eye catcher is decorating the brew!!
For this arrangement, I chose to use floral foam in the container. Placing the container in an ice chest, could cause the flowers to shift in the container. This is like the container is a boat and the flowers are passengers. I used foal foam to stabilize the arrangement. Cut the foam to tightly hug the container. Soak the foam overnight.
I selected fall colors and decorations to remain neutral on teams!! The arrangement may also be in colors of your favorite team. Select flowers for focal point, filler, and highlighting. In this arrangement the focal flowers are roses. Choose the blooms that will be used as the focal flower. Begin by placing the tallest flower in the center of the foam. Place the next bloom to the left and shorter than the first flower. Place the third bloom to the right of the first flower and shorter than the second bloom. Add greenery to the base of the container to conceal the floral foam. Place taller pieces of greenery at the base of the flowers and between the stems of the flowers.
Use the filler flowers of the flower choices to fill the spaces between the focal flowers. Place more of these filler flowers toward the rim of the container. In this arrangement, the filler flowers are red miniature carnations.
Chose a third flower to add highlights to the arrangement. Place these blooms throughout the arrangement. In this arrangement yellow daisy pom=poms are the highlighting.
Remember to create layers of flowers. Never have blooms of the same flower at the same height. Always remember to add dimension to an arrangement by carrying the eye to the center of the arrangement. Color creates dimension.
