Seaview member Marie Philipsen showed us how to make a stunning floral arrangement in a coffee cup or other  container.

First, press the coffee cup into the presoaked florist’s Wet Foam to mark the size of the cup.  Then trim away the excess Wet Foam.

Be sure to leave about half an inch of Wet Foam sticking out above the top of your cup.

Start by sticking greenery into the sides of the foam to make a base for your arrangement. Then continue adding material, working from the  bottom of the arrangement up to the center. Here Marie is giving a preview of  how the flowers will go in, but usually one adds more greenery around the perimeter of the cup first.

Lovely arrangements can be made with just a few flowers and greenery from the garden!
