Flower decorations are a beautiful addition to an everyday table setting and shouldn't only be limited to parties. But it can sometimes be very expensive to use cut flower and they don't really last as long as potted flowers or plants. However there are some really cute, inexpensive and long lasting cut flowers out there. Chrysanthemum flower are some of the most low maintenance cut flowers around and can easily last for two weeks. They are available in a variety of colors and you can often get them in bunches at your local market.
For this decoration we have used flower-foam, soaked in water, and then cut it to fit the pot/container. Cut flowers of you choice and stick them into the flower-foam, starting from the middle and work you way out. You can always fill in little gaps later on. You can make this decoration last longer if you occasionally water the flower-foam.
Let us know if you have any questions.
Happy project! /Sussi & Annika
