Proper Floral Foam Basics That Will Grow Your Design Skills

Proper Floral Foam Basics That Will Grow Your Design Skills

If you want to improve your floral design skills, then you definitely need to learn the basics of working with floral foam. This short video shows you the right way to make a base for your arrangement with floral foam, even if you’ve never worked with it before.

If you are a newbie, this video will get you started off on the right foot, showing you how to create a solid foundation for all types of floral arrangements.

Even if you’ve worked with floral foam before, it also contains some tips that you may not have known about!

It’s a video I think you are going to really enjoy, especially if you love arranging flowers and want to learn more. Take a look and see if you agree!

And there it is! I trust that you found a lot of value.

The Oasis® brand floral foam used in this video, as well as the waterproof tape, can be purchased on Amazon, or check with a local florist.

I would not recommend buying “knock-off” or generic brand floral foam. In my experience, it’s not worth the tiny amount of money you save. The quality of your arrangement is only as good as the foundation it’s built on.

Hello! My name is Greg, the person behind this website and my whole objective for crafting this ever-growing video library is to share loads of great vids from a bunch of my go-to colleagues on YouTube. That’s really my primary objective with all of this.

But here comes the big ol’ “but”…

Alright, before we get too deep into this, I have an admission. Admittedly, my own personal desires are to thank for this site being here. You see, I love design technique videos (like the floral foam how-to vid you just finished up with), and I honestly just wanted a place where I could keep all of my favorites under one roof.

With that said, I see a lot of opportunity in creating this site. I’m just being honest.

Hopefully, you won’t hold it against me if I’m able to generate a little side income from sponsorships and/or product recommendations.

As you can see, I don’t pull any punches. That said… in no way is it my intention to sell you anything. If something offered on my site appeals to you, that’s awesome! If that’s not the case, no concerns. I just appreciate your readership.

I just want you and I to be able to check out some cool floral design technique videos together!

So that’s why FlowersFloralFlorist exists. It’s simply a site for those who really enjoy floral design. If that sounds like something you can appreciate, then I’d love to see you again.

So make this site one that you return to! I’m just gonna be sharing more and more outstanding videos about plants, flowers, and weddings… and we’re only beginning!
