Pottery Barn keeps you abreast with the latest trends in home decor. In this video, Pottery Barn expert Nico De Swert infuses organic materials in floral arrangements by using different kinds of beautifully woven baskets from Pottery Barn as home decor.
As a waterproof barrier, Nico lines the basket with a trimmed garbage bag and uses floral wires to secure it to the basket. For creating the base for this floral arrangement, Nico suggests using champagne buckets. Using a galvanized bucket, filled with water and flower food as the base for making floral arrangements is another good suggestion. The most inexpensive flowers available are the seasonal blooms. In this case, Nico has used yellow chrysanthemums which are in bloom during late summer. Nico assembles his floral arrangement using a well-known European technique. Once the chrysanthemums are bunched up he ties them with a strong thread and chops off the excess stems for a perfect fit in the basket.

Learn how to put flowers in a floral foam arrangement from florist Sarah Brysk Cohen in this DIY flowers tutorial from Howcast, part one of two.
Now that I’ve properly soaked my Oasis Floral Foam and, placed it in the container, measured it to size, cut it and taped it securely, I wanna start adding some of my florals to the floral foam. So, I like to use the greens and the other elements first to give myself a structure.
So, start thinking about how big do you want this arrangement to be, how intricate, and cut your flowers to the size you think you want them. So, let’s start with the greens, we’ll give ourselves that structure, that framework. . . So, I’m gonna cut these . . . I don’t know, about yay high and I’m going to clean a little bit of the foliage off the bottom of the stem because I’m going to place the flowers in the foam with a few inches in the foam. Think about the foam just as you would think about water, it’s going to soak up to the stem and keep that flower fresh, or that green fresh. So, you want to make it’s in there at least an inch or two. And, I like to start with the middle of the structure and work out, so, that way, I’m ensuring I’m not getting crazy big. You, just like working with flowers in a vase, wanna make sure that you cut the greens and the flowers in the floral foam at an angle, giving a lot of surface area for the water to soak up.
And, everything you place in the floral foam, you should place in its position as straight as possible, even if you’re going to be angling out. So, if you start at the top, you can slowly place things further and further down on the Oasis, but you don’t want to place things at an angle that’s very sharp, even if you want it down here, because what happens is, the flowers go in, and you have a jumble of stems underneath, and when you place something down, it can’t sit in the Oasis. The flower tip must sit in the Oasis, so that it can drink water. So, I’m gong to start with my first piece of green, sticking straight up. You want it far down enough, as I said, a few inches down, so that it can drink the water, and you don’t want any of the stems that you placed subsequently to tangle up with that stem. So, you just keep cutting. . . Place it in. You don’t have to put a lot of pressure. Spin it around. . .
And, even with just 3 pieces in here, you’re starting to see this take shape. This is the really fun part about working with floral foam, because you have a lot of control over the shape. Anything heavy, or green, you wanna start putting in now, before any of the soft blooms. . . Get kind of wild with your structure. These branches are really fun, and they’re quite heavy because the stem is woody, so you want to put these in first. If you tried to put these in later, it might get really tight with all of the softer flowers you have and you might end up crushing some things. Keep spinning. Always spin your containers so that you make sure you’re filling in all your holes.
And, at the very end, we’ll make sure that the lip of the vase is covered, with either greens or flowers, so that nobody can see your secret that you’re using Oasis.
In 2014 the Fifth consecutive edition of the National Flower Arrangement Contest took place. For the first time it left Sofia and will took place in Plovdiv, within the specialised exhibition “Flower Spring”. The start of the competition was given by the Ambassador of the Netherlands Mr. Tom van Oorschot.
Theme of the contest was “Tulip Mania”. As every year, the efforts of the contestants have been assessed by a professional jury. The first prize was a ticket and trip to the world famous flower auction in Alsmeer, the Netherlands.
Bring the reds and oranges of autumn inside to create a beautiful fall arrangement. Floral and interior designer Rebecca Cole makes her harvest arrangement using branches and flowers.
How to create beautiful fall flower arrangements
Here’s some ideas from floral and interior designer Rebecca Cole for turning branch arrangements into big and beautiful flower arrangements for a buffet or entryway:
1. Start by adding the tallest and most dramatic flowers. Delphiniums are a great choice. First, take off all the leaves on the stem so the water will reach the bud better and keep the flower lasting longer.
2. Cut the stem with a paring or pocket knife at a diagonal before placing the flower into your floral arrangement. You want the most beautiful part of the flower to be at eye level, so make sure the flower stem isn’t too long.
3. Remember that the branches should be the tallest thing in the arrangement, taller than the flowers because that’s how they naturally grow outdoors.
4. Add a second kind of flower to the arrangement: a less expensive lisianthus is complimentary to the delphinium. Again, remove any leaves on the stem and cut at a diagonal before arranging.
5. Next, add a kale to the arrangement. It’s actually a vegetable, but opens up like a flower when you open up the head. Remove the leaves from the stem and cut at a diagonal. The kale stem is very thick so a paring knife should be used.
6. Finally, a flower with a smaller head creates a nice contrast to the big kale, long delphinium, and lazy lisianthus. The small petals of a carnation will create that extra little pop.
These floral arrangements should be about 5 feet tall from the bottom of the vase to the tops of the branches and will last about a week.

Some say to me I’m pitiful
craving the joy you intend for another
I’m the shadow roommate
the homely friend of the beautiful
girl she is;
the one you’ll marry
and I will position myself
for the bouquet
when it is you I want.
You knock and enter;
I lower my eyes
unable to look at you
and you take a flower
from her bouquet
and give it to me
because that is the way you are
kind to everyone.
And I take it to my diary
and put it between my
where it will scent my thoughts
of what will never be.
The cruelest love of all
lies in that Love’s Aspiration
lies dead in the road
It’s not your fault or hers
it’s my own secret obsession
from which I’ll never be free.
I sit in the window, looking out down below
and I hear your voice:
‘ I just want you to know
I think you are great’
and then you left
and I could hear her
in a bedroom
full of tears
and I rise to look to see about her
and hope against hope
from the fact
had spoken to me;
no longer invisible
filled with your words which have splattered
intended from my roommate
electrified that you noticed me
a single flower from a bouquet
intended for her-
from yet another daydream
