Valentines Balloon Bouquet -
How to Make the Floral Base

This Valentines Balloon Bouquet is - in our opinion - one of the top ten Valentines gifts for her.

Everything is homemade, including the floral base. Here is what you need to make the base where you will attach your balloon centerpiece: 

Material for the Valentine's Balloon Bouquet base
  • a wicker basket, preferably polythene lined (approx. 120mm diameter),
  • a pot plant (in our example we've used a red flowered 'Busy Lizzy') and
  • nylon line 0.5mm (also known as 'perlon').

Cut roughly 300mm length of the nylon line and tie it to the lip of the basket (fig. 1). Then pass the other end of the nylon line through the opposite side, but don't tie it yet (fig. 2).

Now you take your pot plant and place it into the basket (fig. 3). If you don't have a polythene lined basket, put the pot into a small sandwich bag to contain the moisture.

Tie the other end of the nylon line, allowing about 30mm free play. Try to make sure that the line passes through the center of the foliage of your plant (fig. 4).
