Step 1: Cut floral foam Cut the floral foam so it fits snugly into your vase or container. Tip Use an opaque container—such as a ceramic bowl or terra-cotta pot—so guests can't see the foam base inside. Step 2: Soak foam Remove the foam from the container and soak it in water. When it's saturated, put it back in the container. Step 3: Add filler material Add the filler material to the arrangement first. Start by cutting each stem at a 45-degree angle before placing it, and work from the outside to the inside of the arrangement. Tip Cut your flower and filler stems one at a time as you use them, instead of all at once before starting, to keep them fresher longer. Step 4: Add flowers Add the flowers to the arrangement, again trimming the stems at a 45-degree angle before placing. Tip The flowers should be no more than a few inches taller than the container, so seated guests can see and converse with each other over the arrangement. Step 5: Add water daily Add water every day—or more often, if necessary. Did You Know? At the height of the Netherlands' "Tulip Mania" in the late 17th century, some varieties of tulips could cost more than an Amsterdam house.
