Wilfreta G. Baugh, Vice-Chair, Competitive Classes at the PHS Philadelphia Flower Show, demonstrates how to make one of her favorite types of floral arrangements  —  the underwater arrangement!

Start  by gathering your materials. You'll need a clear glass container, flowers, branches or vines, and water conditioner to reduce chlorine and pH levels.

Wilfreta will show us how she uses curly willow to form a vine. The secret is to make the vine larger than your container so that the tension will hold everything in place. From there, the choices of flora and other elements are all up to you.  Happy designing!
