Add color to Halloween by decorating with flowers!
I looked for a Skull open at the top and recessed eye sockets. I had to drill a hole in the eye socket to allow the flower stems to go in the floral foam. Cut a piece of floral foam to fit in the skull. Soak the foam until saturated. Place the soaked floral foam in the skull.
I chose yellow spray roses, orange miniature carnations and white button pom-poms for this arrangement.
Begin by placing the end of a single rose bloom in the floral foam through each eye socket. Add greenery to the top of the skull to cover the floral foam. Remember to follow the shape of the foam without covering the skull.
Trim the blooms from the bottom of a stem of spray roses. The tighter blooms should be at the top of the stem. Carefully cut the open blooms from the bottom of the stem. Set them aside. Place a long stem of the tight blooms at the center of the foam. Trim another stem of roses. Place the stem with tight blooms lower and to the right and lower than the first stem. Place longer open blooms, that were previously placed aside, to the left and lower than the other blooms. Continue placing the remaining open roses toward the base of the skull.
Trim the miniature carnations the same as the roses. Take a long stem of tight blooms of the miniature carnations and place it taller than the tallest rose. Follow the design of the roses and place miniature carnation between the rose blooms.
Add depth to your design by placing single blooms of the button pom-poms to the center of the container closer to the floral foam. This also ties in the color of the skull.
I would recommend placing the skull on a flat saucer before setting it on the table. This will protect any water spilling onto the table and also allow water to remain in the floral foam.
