Spread Out a Little With a Long and Low Arrangement
A long and low arrangement is not an everyday display, but this classic design has its place in a traditional setting or at a formal dinner party. It would also work well on a low coffee table or a boardroom table in an office.

Place the Spray Roses
Place the deeper pink spray roses next, ensuring that you maintain an even visual balance with the larger roses and foliage.
Add Other Flowers
Add the dark dill and astrantia blooms, filling in areas where there are still gaps.
Add the Final Flowers
Add the sprays of lady's mantle last to fill any obvious gaps and balance out the shape and color of the arrangement. Add odd pieces of viburnum and salal if the foam still shows through.
If you mist the flowers every other day and keep the foam wet, this arrangement should last for four or five days.
