How adorable are these daisies in a tea cup?

Wouldn’t this make a cute hostess gift or a pick me up for a friend who has been down?  It is the perfect little something to show someone you care.

And here is how you do it…

Soak florist foam in water before you begin per package directions.  You can find florist foam at Hobby Lobby, Michaels, or any craft type store.

Cut florist foam to fit the tea cup you have chosen.  Have the florist foam a little bit above the cup so the flowers will have some additional height without being all stems.

Cut the flower stems about an inch long.  Start with the row around the cup’s lip making sure you cover the lip of the cup.

Add another row of flowers above the first row.  Make this row a bit higher than the bottom row and keep adding until the florist foam is completely covered.  You should have a dome shape.

You can use any type of flowers you like.  Mixing and matching different flowers in the tea cup would also be adorable.

  1. Those are really cute but how do you cover up the foam in the cup? If you use a clear cup then you can see the foam. I guess I could just use a patterned cup.

    • I left mine bare with the green of the florist foam showing through. I like the contrast of the green and the white daisies. If using a clear cup you could always get a long wide green leaf of some sort and swirl it around the cup before putting the florist foam in or just use a cup that isn’t clear if you don’t like that look!

  2. Love this idea! I can see these bouquets as table running centerpieces at baby/bridal showers or lady’s brunch parties. They look so elegant and easy to make. :)

  3. You and I are on the save wavelength. I wrote a post last week about arranging flowers this way! I love the teacup idea.
