When decorating for a evening gathering, don’t neglect the lighting!
Maximize decorating for a party by accenting the lighting. Strings of lights throughout the trees are enhanced with small arrangements floating in the air!
You Will Need:
Floral Water Tubes
18” #22 Floral Wire
Dark Green Floral Wrap Tape
Assorted Small Blooms
#3 Iridescent Ribbon
Begin by taping a piece of 18” wire with the dark green floral wrap. Fill each water tube with warm water treated with floral preservative. Wrap the end of the taped wire around the top of the water tube about 2 times. Bend back the other end of the wire to form a hook to attach to the string of lights.
Using a sharp knife, slit the cap of the water tube to allow additional room for flower stems. Place a large bloom near the rim of the water tube. Add taller and smaller blooms above these blooms to complete the arrangement. Balance the blooms by allowing the wire hanger to blend in the center of the arrangement. This should keep the flowers standing straight.
Make a bow using the iridescent ribbon. Complete the arrangement by adding the bow to the water tube, below the flowers, to conceal the water tube. Hook the wire over the hanging lights in the center of 2 light bulbs. Try not to allow the flowers to get near the light bulbs. Enjoy!
