    • 2). Soak the fresh flower foam in the water. Leave the foam in the water for about an hour. Fresh flower foam has to be soaked before use.

      Cut some of the fresh flowers. The stems should be cut at an angle to allow more water to seep into the flowers. The flowers will remain fresh for longer if they are able to draw more water.

    • 6). Insert the fresh flowers into the foam. Place the flowers at the center and bottom of the foam. Fill in the spaces that are left in the arrangement using some greenery. The foam shouldn't be visible when you insert all of the flowers. Large blossoms should be placed at the center. Create a consistent look in your arrangement by using odd-number displays of the large blossoms.

    • 7). Place the lace or ribbon in the middle of your full casket blanket. Write a message on the ribbon or lace.
