New style father’s day

Flowers and craft beer together make a great gift for Father’s Day. The bottles often have attractive black and white labels. Match the flower colours to that. You can’t usually sell alcoholic drinks in a florist’s shop, but the customer can bring their own bottles of beer in. You could also display this arrangement at an off-licence; the customer can buy craft beer there in order to have it turned into something lovely at your shop.

How to make it

Step 1. Completely fill the terracotta bowl with oasis. Press the bottles into it (at the edge) and remove them again to mark the area where you should not place flowers.

Step 2. Create the flower arrangement in the middle. Replace the bottles. Then insert the delicate Cosmos flowers between the bottles.
