You may need floral clay to
keep the floral foam snug in the vase.
You may also want to use
floral tape to make a grid pattern on the top of the vase to help hold your
flowers in place while you are arranging. You can also get this
grid pattern easily by just using floral netting
on the top of the vase.
If you are making this
arrangement with fresh flowers you will want to have floral stem wire available to
strengthen and lengthen the stems. See wiring techniques
for more information on how to use wire.
