When you've finished wiring the gerbera stems, let's prepare the foam.
Cut the foam into 4 equal pieces of 2 x 2 x 5 inches. Soak in clean water.
Then, arrange the blocks into a square on the glass plate and secure them with wood picks.
Next, arrange the pink and yellow gerberas in your hands and form a round bouquet at the top of your hand, like this.
When you're happy with it, bind the stems together with cellophane tape. To make it stronger, wrap it with floral tape.
Now, insert the gerbera stems into the foam. Make sure the stems are securely inserted and balanced.
Let's decorate the bottom part. Take the ivy leaves and place them around the plate and foam. To maintain its position, we secure the ivy leaves to the foam using floral wire.
And it should look like this...
Insert the rest of the pink and yellow gerberas into the foam. Do not insert too much of them because gerberas are big flowers.At the empty spaces of the foam, fill it up with pink esters.
When that's done, put some fruit casa.
For the last part, tie a pink and yellow ribbon at where you taped the gerbera stems.
This is how your birthday flower arrangement will look like. Looks cheerful, doesn't it?
