Make individual arrangements for your guests. Put them together the day before, and keep them in a cool, dark place overnight.

  • Purchase heavy-duty cardboard boxes from the crafts store.
  • Wrap each box in silver gift wrap, using double-stick tape.
  • Cover the lid in gold paper, and set the wrapped box into it.
  • Cut moist florist foam to fit in each box. Wrap it in plastic, leaving the top open for flowers, and place in boxes.
  • Arrange flowers. Cut stems short so blooms snuggle in a cluster on the box opening.
