Volunteer and Philadelphia Flower Show Arrangements Advisor, Valerie McLaughlin, shows us how to craft a show-stopping, beach-inspired Phoenix floral design.

Gather a few supplies before you start, including a round glass bowl, a small vase, tall grasses, sea shells, and grass and foliage of your choice. Follow Valerie as she demonstrates how to create this unique arrangement using an inverted triangular shape at the center to represent the Phoenix, a mythological bird that rose from the ashes renewed and ready to live a full life.
