Step 3: Add greenery between the flower heads to break up the colors and add texture.

Step 2: Push the foam into the opening of the vase. You may need to cut pieces of the foam brick to completely fill the container.
Step 3: Begin pushing flowers into the floral foam. Start at the center with the larger flowers and work your way out in a circular pattern.
