I love this old floral trick. Cut floral tape (any sticky tape will do) and adhere to lid of your container in a crisscross pattern. The flowers will stay put as you arrange your bouquet. Just add a decorative wrap and your done! Try it and send me a picture. Find a variety of colors and patterns at

    Cathy, a great how-to! A lot of times, people are afraid to try floral design because they don’t know the “mechanics”!. Other ideas to keep the flowers in place is a ball of chicken wire inside (or you could put on top like the tape, a ball of deco or florist wire inside, or ball up some flexible stems like curly willow. Any of these will help to keep your stems in place. You can also use a “flower frog” which is easily available at major craft stores to put inside the pot. Your idea, though, is by far the easiest and cheapest!

    Oh – and one more thing…the floral tape is also available in clear or green for those who don’t want white!
