If you plan to have a wedding in your home yard and you have decided to do the floral designing on your own, it is important to be aware of some of the most essential floral accessories that will help make the decoration job a success.

It retains its shape when soaked in water and steadily supplies the water to the cut flower plants it supports. The absorbent nature of floral foam allows it to retain large amounts of water, which subsequently extends the life of your flowers and keeps them looking healthy and vibrant.

This super-thin wire will form the base of your flower headpieces. It will not only hold the flower tiara together, but it will also allow you to attach bigger statement flowers along the headpiece. What is more, florist wire is ductile enough for you to redesign the crowns whichever way you want.

Vases

Floral vases are a nice way to create a natural wedding arrangement that complements the look of other plants in your garden. Once your cut flowers have been put in the vases, they can be strategically placed adjacent to potted garden flowers to display a wonderful palette of colors. Some vases are even integrated with decorative etchings and coatings to accentuate the natural beauty of the flowers kept inside them.
