Increase design options with the
vertical placement of an OASIS® brick.

First of all we used the latest OASIS® Noir Ideal Floral Foam Maxlife Brick in this design to form a black tower. As a result this means extra linear height for the flowers inserted into the top of the brick.
Also encouraging the horizontal placement of leaves, twigs and other flowers. While in contrast you can leave some out if you wish to expose the black floral foam as a design feature.

Step 1.  First of all soak OASIS® Noir Ideal Floral Foam Maxlife Brick and place vertically into the ceramic cube container.

Step 2. Another step is to Insert three stems of Philodendron leaves on one side of the brick to form a wall. Similarly place another stem into the top of the foam to make a canopy.

Step 3. Almost finished. Now create a collage of focal flowers using disbud Chrysanthemums, Asiatic Lily and finally a tuft of Hydrangea. Also extend the line by also adding buds of Asiatic Lily, spray Roses and Hypericum berries.

Step 4.  Also add some height with another Asiatic Lily, Dahlia buds and Hypericum berries stripping stems to strengthen the visual line. Furthermore you can counter balance the visual weight by inserting a twig into the base of the arrangement.
*Finally spray the completed design with FloraLife® Finishing Touch.
