Cut the stems of the foliage at an angle and remove excess
leaves before starting to insert into the foliage.

of the display before piercing the oasis.

If you have cones or baubles, thread wire through then
trim and twist the ends to make individual picks and insert between
the foliage and flowers. Once complete, display on the table and water
every few days to keep the oasis damp.
