Flower Arranging Tips – Floral Foam

Hi There,

Did you know that Floral Foam comes in different varieties?  Many different varieties including Standard, Instant, Springtime, All Purpose, Extra Firm and Designer.  These are fresh floral foam varieties and each variety has a different density.  The Springtime is the softest and is meant for soft stemmed (Spring) flowers such as tulips and daffodils.  The Standard or All Purpose is a medium density and made to accomodate most flower choices.  The Extra Firm and Designer foam is the heaviest density and is meant to hold heavy branches such as Manzanita or Curly Willow.  Most foam comes in blocks, called bricks and are about the same size as a brick.  The Designer Floral Foam is super BIG, 6″ x 9″ x 12.75″.  I use the designer foam a lot.  It can be cut down to smaller sizes, but if you are using a lot of flower stems or really heavy stems, this is the only way to go.  I use this floral foam whenever I am making LARGE floral pieces.

Bricks of styrofoam can also be purchased for use with silk flowers.  They are usually the same size as regular floral foam bricks 3″ x 4″ x 8″ and can also be cut down if needed.
