Add the Largest Flower Heads
Use the largest flower heads next: Trim each stem to approximately 4 inches and insert it at an angle. Angle the flower heads inserted around the base of the foam downward, and those at the top angled upward. Give the flowers and foliage a quick misting.
Insert More Flowers
Insert the flowers evenly around the arrangement. Move the arrangement around as you work so that you distribute the flowers evenly. Here, four flowers have been inserted around the lower part of the foam, and three around the upper part.
Add Smaller Flowers
Add a smaller flower next; spire-shaped flowers work well in an arrangement like this. Insert them at an angle in between the first flowers. Allow these spiky flowers to rise up out of the arrangement slightly to break the rounded contours of the other blooms.
