@The_Future_KB:  I’m doing flowers in planter boxes for a wedding this weekend, and my suggestion is to line the boxes with plastic and use soaked floral foam. Another option is to put small glass or plastic containers (like little jars) inside the planter boxes and stick the roses in those (covering with moss). I’d be concerned with your flowers staying upright and in the spots where you’d like them to be in addition to staying hydrated. Little flower stem tubes are also an option but dificult, logistically, to get them to stay where you put them.

@The_Future_KB:  I’d cut up a heavy-duty plastic drop cloth to line the bottom and use plastic wrap around the sides of the foam. You don’t need a ton of foam, especially for containers that narrow – just a long strip. And it doesn’t have to fill the box. You can easily have it just come halfway up and then put the moss on top after you put the flowers in.

My flowers went without water for 6 hours and were fine, so I’d soak your floral foam and assemble them the day before the wedding!

Roses are super hardy!

Another option, if you don’t want to use foam (I rarely use it, as it is really environmentally unfriendly): put in your packing paper, make a clear tape grid an inch or two over it, then sink the water tubed roses where you want them in the tape grid. Add moss on top to hide the tape grid.
