In 1991, I was determined
to find a way to make a simple arrangement of my flowers without having
the things fall down, rip out of the frog pins or just look like I shoved
a bunch into a jar. I also didn't like
cutting all my flowers
to do so. Being totally inept at the use of frog pins, I designed
these flower arrangers and much to my delight, they work perfectly.
Select any long stem flower (bird of paradise, ginger, glads, daffodils,
iris, etc.), add some grasses or rush, and wedge the stems tightly with
extra pieces of stem, celery or another flower. The flowers will
last as long as they would in a traditional vase and will stand as long
as they are wedged in tight. You can showcase your flowers as they
were grown or select a specimen flower at your florist's.
