The large “Arrange It!” box contains a larger “Flower Girl” Basket. The liner measures about 6 ½ “. I would use this basket as a table centerpiece. In my opinion, it is too large to carry, but is a traditional Easter Basket look. I will fix one arrangement with an Easter motif.
The Oasis Floral Foam Brick will fix about 2 arrangements for this basket. Cut the brick in half and soak it in a container of warm water. Soaking make take overnight. As with the small basket, remove the liner and place the Oasis in the liner. It should rise above the liner about 1”. Using the waterproof floral tape in the “Arrange It!” box, lightly tape the Oasis to the liner. Replace the liner in the basket.
One design for the large “Arrange It!” basket is a Easter motif, as shone above. I selected a mixed bouquet from the flower selection that was shades of purple and white. To this a choose to add a single pack of yellow daisy pom-poms. The selection of purple flowers were preselected in this mixed bouquet. This included only one bloom from different varieties. I used the color as a single flower selection. I used the stock as the tall flower, and completed the pattern using the single carnation, Fugi Mum and Alstromerias. I used the yellow daisy pom-poms close to the Oasis and brim of the basket to give the arrangement visual depth. I choose not to use a bow for this selection.
These are just a few ideas to experiment with the “Arrange It!” box available through Techniques4Flowers.com.
Next week I have recreated Mother’s "Little Girls Easter Bunny Corsage"!
