Introduction

Floral tape is the secret to the arrangement’s structure: Taping stems in bundles produces an interesting, angular effect in the water while a grid of tape across the mouth of the dish keeps everything in place.

steps

  1. Place 3 evenly spaced lengths of
    tape across the opening, then another 3
    perpendicular to those to create a grid.
    Run tape around the edge to secure.

  2. Cut out grid’s center with floral knife.
    Fill compote halfway with water. Using
    container’s depth as a guide, cut flowers’
    stems at an angle with floral shears.

  3. Arrange in bundles of up to 12 muscari
    and 12 ranunculus; tape stems together
    below blooms. Place bundles in grid,
    1 per small opening; mass several in the center.

  4. Check water level daily; if it falls, replenish
    using a watering can with a narrow spout.
    Arrangement should last 7 to 10 days if
    kept away from direct light and heat sources.
