Keep tool within reach. Soak the floral foam.

Step 1
Generously apply the silicone glue on small patches of the container and press in the gravel. Repeat until the container is fully covered.

Step 2
Place in the floral foam. Use a knife to cut a few inches of the stems of the Sunderland lilies. A clean cut in a sharp angle ensures the flowers can take in enough water so they can open up gloriously.
