Flower arranging can seem like a daunting task for those of us who feel less than creative when faced with an empty vase and an armload of blooms. However, even the most humble grocery store bouquet can look like a high-end creation when artfully arranged.
The secret is in the mechanics—the part that no one sees. Most at-home florists don’t have a ready supply of frogs, tapes, foam, and wire. The Easy Arranger, available at shopPHS.org, creates a perfect, stable grid on top of almost any size vase. By varying the heights of the stems, working from tall in the middle of the grid to shorter around the edges, your flowers practically arrange themselves.
The kit includes five bendable, reusable wire grids to fit a variety of vases from four to eight inches in diameter. Once your arrangement is complete, the grid is invisible. Also included in the kit are five floral design cards and a set of five clear gems that can be attached to the grid to dangle around the edge of the vase.
So, cut those blossoms and fill your rooms with the bounty of the flower garden!
