Have you already tried the new floral foam trend..?


Smithers-Oasis, the inventor of the first water-absorbing floral foam, launched a new product range under the name OASIS® Black Ideal floral foam a few months ago. Using it became a floral trend in no time. But why is that..? Let us give you a behind-the-scenes look!


For starters, black generally stands for elegance and style and is without a doubt one of the chicest colours available. It exudes luxury and exclusivity, and this optically raises the flower arrangement to a higher level.

Important, and totally different from the familiar green floral foam, is that the foam may also be seen. You do not have to completely cover this black OASIS® floral foam with greenery and flowers, because it can be part of the flower arrangement. As a result, considerably less material is required, which is financially attractive, and making a beautiful creation takes less time. In short, there are many benefits.

So the user of the black floral foam takes on the role of a designer, plus the colour can be combined well with any flower colour. But the best colours to combine with this floral foam are orange, yellow and purple, we feel.

But what about the quality of this black OASIS® floral foam?


Smithers-Oasis has succeeded in giving this black floral foam the same qualitative properties as the OASIS® Ideal floral foam. It is a product of consistently good quality, and the flowers stay fresh for a long time. You can insert the flowers in this new floral foam as easily as in the green variant.

And did you know that one brick of OASIS® floral foam can soak up around 2 litres of water? It makes for a real water reservoir for flowers, and that in just 50 seconds!

About the different types, shapes & sizes


OASIS® BLACK Ideal floral foam does not only come in various shapes and sizes – like the wreaths, hearts, bricks etc. – but also with several different bases.

Of course, there are the OASIS® black Ideal floral foam products that have no base, like the following two: OASIS® black Ideal foam brick and black Ideal sphere. Then there are the OASIS® black table deco’s and the OASIS® black junior complete, which have a plastic base. These products are perfect for a table arrangement.

Products with a black plastic base such as the OASIS® NAYLORBASE® wreath and black design ring have been a firm part of the company’s range for many years. The plastic base is robust and durable and gives the arrangement a firm hold. It also serves as a water reservoir, enabling preparatory work in advance.

The recycled carton base is usually found in the sympathy range of all OASIS® BIOLIT® products. The base is made of paper-mâché and is therefore compostable and environmentally friendly. The structure of this base gives arrangements the necessary hold. Products that employ this base can be used in most cemeteries without a problem. The regulations differ per country and region, however, so we always encourage you to inquire locally.

The OASIS® Black BIOLIT® shapes that are available are rings, hearts and a cross.

So, in conclusion, the new range offers an enormous amount of possibilities!
