The Thrill Of It All

by Ardith Beveridge, Tastemaker in Residence

Place floral foam in your container of choice. Fill container with water 1-2 inches above the lip of the foam, add flower food.

Hydrangea flower and foliages
7 cymbidium orchids
1 bunch green ranunculus including the buds

1. Remove leaves from hydrangea stem, insert in wet foam to cover the foam, some to come out the sides of the lip of the container
2. Insert the hydrangea on one side of the foam, a couple small stems in the other side
3. Insert all the ranunculus in the quarter of the foam on the left
4. Cut the cymbidium stem in parts to be able to place them in a strong line through the center quarter of the design. If stems are too short, place them in water tubes filled with fresh clean water with flower food.
