Materials Needed:

  • footed compote, small urn or container of choice
  • scissors
  • knife
  • floral tape
  • wet floral foam
  • 10 lavender ornamental kale
  • 15 white ornamental kale
  • asparagus spears

Measure Then Soak Foam

Determine amount of wet floral foam needed by placing dry blocks in compote. Foam should be 1 to 2 inches taller than vessel lip. Using knife, cut foam accordingly. Fill bucket or sink with water twice the depth of dry foam. Place floral foam in water and allow to soak for 30 minutes or until completely saturated.

Fill Vessel With Saturated Foam

Place floral foam in vessel and, if desired, secure with floral tape placed over the foam in a cross-like fashion.

Create Floral Triangle

Determine desired height and width of arrangement. Cut kale ends at an angle with knife or scissors then insert into foam working in a triangular fashion to ensure roundness of finished centerpiece.
