Hi, Sandy with A-Flora and today, we are going to talk about fresh flower foam, you might heard called Oasis, that is the brand name and all of this products that you see here are Oasis products. Let us talk about some of the fun things that they have. Here, we have some Oasis balls and you could make beautiful flower girl palm under balls with fresh flowers to carry. And, they come in three different sizes, the large is being a 6 inch and the smallest being a 2 ½ inch. We also have bouquet holders, we have some beautiful ones that come in silver or gold and then, we some plastic ones and you soak this oasis, it has got flour preservatives in it and then, you can arrange your fresh flowers right in there. These are bouquet holders that will make your bouquet look like a hand tied bouquet, which is very popular right now.
You put the flowers on the top, the stems come out of the bottom and then you can wrap ribbon around them. They come in two sizes and then you have a hand tied bouquet. We also have some cylinders and these are for arranging flowers. This one fits into what we call the O’Bowl perfectly and we also have an O’Daptors and this is quite nice. You put this little piece here into a candle holder if you have a candle opera, maybe a five candle opera, this one can go to the middle, your flowers can cascade down and your candle can be around it, very beautiful O’Daptors.
We also have some cages, this is very nice for few works or fewer works, the Oasis or fresh flower foam is contain in a cage and then can be tied on to stand or the pew, very nice. And, here are some fun things. Oasis wreaths, these are beautiful, these can be for your table with candles in the center of it, this can hang, you can put ivy on here, it will ribbon here, it can even go on your door. You have to remember to keep watering it though. And, there is also a large wreath with a fresh flower oasis foam in it, so these are kind of fun products.
This is similar to a wreath, but it is a ring and it has got a container underneath it, so that you could fill these all up with flowers. This ring is quite nice, because they provide you with the little booklet, because with all kinds of ideas, as well. Here we some mini deco and these little tiny oasis half round mounts were perfectly for little tiny places that you need to put a few fresh flowers. So, this is good for maybe a shower favor or if you want a sticky back, you can put it on a tray if you are going to serves deserts and have those just a few fresh flowers on the corners, this is a very fun thing and you got a 12 of them in the package.
Over here, I have a few other fresh flower foams, this one is also a cylinder, we call it a cake and you can imagine if we could just covered this with fresh flowers all the way around, it would look like a cake and if you want it to, you could even make a center piece with the double layered cake and cover it with white cushion mums, it will look just like frosting, very, very nice. And, some other small holders that have oasis or fresh flower foam in them.
One that can be stuck into for instance a cake top or you can use this as a holder, you can turn it upside down and put some ribbon around it and carry it, suspended it, we can make this into a ball shape, because we are good flora designers. And, this is also a very nice as a cake top or if you have a wedding cake with pillars in it, this can slide in between and have fresh flowers in it and fit right between the cake pillars. So, here are some products that we can use and some different ideas for each one. Have a great day.
