An easy customization that
can be done in advance adds holiday flair to Valentine’s Day
When space may be limited—whether on a recipient’s desk or in
your department’s cooler—low, compact arrangements such as this
one are ideal selections. Swirled wires, inserted to create the
illusion of a heart, keep the look modern and can be completed
by any available staff well in advance of the big day.
‘Ocean Song’ roses from
Royal Flowers; ‘Moonlite™’ carnations from Florigene Flowers;
Gerberas from The Sun Valley Group; salal and Hypericum from
favorite suppliers; Cement Vase from Jamali Floral & Garden
Supplies; Oasis™ Aluminum Wire from Oasis® Floral Products; wood
picks from W.J. Cowee; Floratape® Stem Wrap from Bemis Company.
Coil two lengths of aluminum wire using needle-nose
pliers. Adhere the two lengths to a wood pick with stem
wrap. Gently shape the wires to resemble a heart.
