I’d like to share with you some with you some ideas for arrangements in the Small “Flower Girl” Basket. In the “Arrange It!” box, you will find the basics to start these arrangements.
The Oasis Floral Foam Brick is large enough to fix 3 separate arrangements. Cut 1/3 of the brick and soak it in a container of warm water. Soaking may take overnight. The basket contains a plastic liner. Remove the liner and place the soaked 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.
I begin my arrangements with the greenery. These arrangements all use leatherleaf greenery. This only uses 2 stems of leatherleaf. Cut the stems into small pieces. Use the pieces to cover the Oasis.
Two selections are tall. The flowers are taller than the handle of the basket. One arrangement is using pink miniature carnations, white daisy pom-poms, and Baby’s Breath. This is one small bunch of each flower selection. Use the Miniature Carnation as the primary flower. Place the white daisies lower than the miniature carnations. Finish the arrangement by placing small pieces of the Baby’s Breath heavily between the other blooms.
The third arrangement is features at the top of this post. It is pink miniature carnations and Baby’s Breath. These are the same mini carnations used in the tall arrangement. This basket arrangement is ideal for a Flower Girl in a Wedding. The flowers are arranged below the handle. This allows the basket to be carried by the handle without severe damage to the arrangement.
Three arrangements can be designed for this small “Flower Girl” basket of the “Arrange It!”. All you need to add are your personal choices for the flowers.
Next week we will look at designs for the larger “Flower Girl” basket using larger selections of flowers.
