Your hatbox is complete and ready for your arrangement.

To make the arrangement, first place glass vase and fresh floral foam into the hatbox.

Note: For longer flower life, soak floral foam in water for 10-15 minutes before inserting into a vase.

Add your choice of flowers and greenery, cutting each stem at an angle and at the same length, then inserting into the floral foam.
