One of the challenges to creating a flower arrangement is getting your flowers to stay put where you placed them, especially if your vase or container is not packed full of stems. One of the tricks that we used at my flower shop was to make a grid using waterproof floral tape or making a curly willow nest inside your container. Both of these techniques help space the flowers evenly and make creating an arrangement a snap. Here is a little tutorial to show you how I use these techniques. If you are unable to find waterproof floral tape, which comes in both white and green, you can use transparent tape that you trim into thirds lengthwise. Make sure you secure the transparent tape grid with a band of tape around the lip of the vase as it may not stick if it gets wet. ~Lia
