Get Creative! Do it Yourself

December 15, 2009


Cut a block of floral foam to fit inside a decorative martini glass, leaving about an inch above the top. Hide the foam by lining the glass with large leaves. Don’t have any? Lettuce or Swiss chard will do the trick. Beginning on the outside, making concentric circles with your materials, Beidermeir style (did I spell it right?). This is a great design for short stemmed flowers. Notice how I added lime slices. So fun! The second design, using real martini glasses, was created using two levels of floral foam on a flat tray. Love lime green spider mums!
