the steps below or watch Anne prepare a basket
arrangement by clicking on the image below
You will need a flat basket and a 'spade' oasis
holder with oasis cut to fit. Tape the oasis
to the spade before beginning.
Place the stem of a large leather leaf into
the top of the oasis so it lies flat to one
side of the basket.
Then insert Iris. Cut the Iris so they are 3
different lengths and insert in a line in the
middle of the oasis.
Place 2 carnations on each side of the Iris.
Insert daffodils into each side of the oasis
so that all the flowers flow in one direction.
Don't forget if your daffodil stems need reinforced,
just insert a little twig into the stem.
Insert Arum leaves into the sides of the oasis
and make sure no oasis is showing.
Place three Bergenia leaves at the bottom of
the oasis but have is facing the opposite direction
of the flowers.
Insert stems into the oasis and behind the Bergenia
leaves so they stick up as above.
Insert a bow just infront of the Bergenia leaves
and your Easter basket is complete. It's now
ready and easy to carry to give to a friend
or relative that you visit over the holiday
