flower arrangement


Step 1 - Soak the floral foam in water that's been treated with flower food/preservative.
Step 2 - Empty one 4-pack of soda and fill with water that has been treated with flower food/preservative. Now insert the gerbera daisies, one in each bottle, at varying heights.
Step 3 - Line the popcorn box with plastic bag. Cut floral foam to fit inside container. The foam should come up about 1-inch below the rim of the container.
Step 4 - Cut the Fuji mums to about 2-inches in length and insert them into the floral foam.
Step 5 - Putting it all together:
  • Crumple newspaper and insert in the bottom of the metal tub/ice bucket (building up a lower layer of the bucket to prop up soda pop and popcorn container).
  • Insert the soda pop (both flower filled and soda filled).
  • Insert popcorn.
  • Rubber band dad's magazines and insert.
  • Cover the newspaper with popcorn.
