- 3-inch floral pin frog
- Floral Scissors/shears
- Floral Putty
- Double Tulip
- Garden Rose ‘Juliet’
- Garden Rose ‘Romantic Antike’
- Spray garden rose (multiple small blooms per stem)
- Peony ‘Coral Charm’
- Fringe bush foliage
- Cordyline Plant
- Poppy *not pictured below
- Using floral putty, secure the floral pin frog in the bottom of the vase. Always make sure that the vessel is completely dry to ensure proper adhesion. Begin with the fringe–this is what creates a base and structure for your arrangement. Make sure that the branches are secure in between the frog pins while still allowing them to rest naturally inside the vessel. It is always beautiful to let flowers and foliage spill over the vessel.
- Add the dogwood, ensuring that is, too, is secured inside the frog vessel.
- Add the tulips, allowing them to arc over the sides
- Then add the spray garden roses throughout the arrangement
- Add the peonies, using some of the more fully opened blooms at different heights in the center to create layers and add dimension. *Finish here for a beautiful, but simpler design.
- Add the Romantic Antike and Juliet garden roses
- Tuck a few ranunculus in between the other blooms
- For a final touch, add a few cordyline leaves and poppies.
