Anyone have a suggestion as to the easiest and most…sturdy (?) way to assemble these babies? I have nearly all my flowers made but i am at a loss now. I was planning on curling wire and gluing it to the flower then pushing the ends into the foam ball but i am scared they may fall out throughout the day. Should a person glue them against the ball as well?
also, does anyone have any experience with the bouquet holders that have the stems? i was thinking of buying one for my bouquet.

@REchick: It would take some extra time, but for extra security, you could use a couple of stitches along with the glue to attach the flowers to the wire. As for the styrofoam ball, I’ve never read of anyone having issues with the stems falling out. Have you thought about gluing the flowers directly to the foam and bypassing the wire?

@HisMoon: i did consider that but was thinking with the wire i can loosen up how they sit rather than stacking them ontop of eachother. I am glad to hear that the wore in the foam was enough to hold them. i do have a few that were done in wooden sticks as well so those should hold also.
I think i will add the stitches in. I have spent so much time making the flowers it would be a shame if they unglued throughout the night :s.
