Line surface of footed cake stand with moistened florist’s moss.
Soak florist’s foam in water, then place in centre of cake stand, on top of moss. The saturated foam will anchor the arrangement while keeping the flowers hydrated.
Trim rose stems to 5cm and insert into top of foam cube, creating a tight cluster that overlaps edges. Tuck small succulent rosettes around foam.
Continue tucking succulents until foam cube is entirely concealed.
Clip off a few larger succulents and anchor around flower stems. If necessary, insert heavy-gauge wire up through centre to secure, so rosettes face outwards.
Regularly moisten moss and foam to ensure arrangement is long-lasting.
