It doesn't take much experience creating large floral designs to appreciate how having the right size and configuration of floral foam makes the job easier.
For large designs, starting with large floral foam makes sense. Reducing size is easy: you just cut with a knife.
Of course, if you're making many of the same design, precut pieces save you lots of time. This is why OASIS Floral offers more than 390 floral foam configurations including size, shape, foam type, backing, color, holders, cages, handles and more.
Bigger can be challenging
Making bigger than standard pieces can be a more time consuming challenge.
Configuring, gluing, waiting and shaping can all be worth it when you are cooking up a fabulous unique arrangement. Even so, we have some products that'll make your life easier, if you plan a couple days ahead.
Building bricks (and blocks)
First, there are OASIS® Grande Bricks
, which at 9 by 4.75 by 6 inches, are the size of two standard bricks.
Then there are OASIS Designer Blocks
, which at 12 by 9 by 6 inches equal six standard bricks. Both are Deluxe OASIS Floral Foam MaxLife
