Summer is coming – and we’re ready for it! We hope to see florists surprise us this season, with creative arrangements bursting with colour as well as artistic approaches. To help, we provide some professional foam-based design concepts for you below. Plus, we highlight the role of special floral foam shapes. With these quirky bases, you can design the ideal, custom-made decoration for every occasion or party. Easy!
Colourful table pieces with black foam
As a florist, there are many effective ways to cover your floral foam and hide your design mechanics. You can use bags, wraps, pots, or just plant material to do so. But OASIS® BLACK Floral Foam can also be used as a striking design element, as you can see in these pictures.
Modern design in green and white
Aren’t those elegant pieces? Using little more than straightforward techniques, the designers create some highly sophisticated work. Professional florist products like OASIS® AQUA COLOUR Spray and wax in matching hues, help take these pieces to the next level. A powerful tribute to Summer, in just green and white!
