Hydrangeas, sunflowers, roses, bells of Ireland, mums, and snapdragons create a lush bed for green pears. Learn how to get the look.


  1. securing foam into the footed vase with tape

    Step 1

    Place dry floral foam in a sink or cake pan and cover it with cool water. Let it soak, flipping if needed, until the foam is saturated with water. Trim floral foam with a knife to fit it snugly into the container. Depending on the container size, this may require one or more blocks of foam. Place strips of floral tape over the floral foam to secure to the container.

    Place three large flowers, such as sunflowers, in the foam to form a triangle. Note: When making a two-sided arrangement, use two additional sunflowers to form a triangle on the back side.

    Fill in around the sunflowers with other flowers. Start with large or sturdy flowers and progress to small or fragile blooms.
