Flowers and Foliage
6 'Dauco Corato' dill, or another flowering dill
7 'Aqua' single roses
1 garden viburnum stem (cut down into small sprays with short stems)
7 pink spray roses
6 lady's mantle (cut down into small sprays with short stems)
6 salal stems

block of floral foam and single plastic tray
Prepare the Tray and Foam
Place a soaked block of foam on a single tray and bind the two together with two lengths of florist's tape.
Create the Basic Structure
Set the height, length and width of the arrangement with the first few stems of viburnum. Press a stem in at an angle on each side of the foam and position three stems along the top to create a skeleton shape and spine.
