Pretty Flowers Arranged with Moss
An amaryllis and orchids in complementary colors make a cheerful display on a buffet or entryway table. The blanket of moss hides the individual pots, so the plants appear to sprout up from the ground.

Position plants (in original plastic nursery pots) in tray so tall amaryllis stands in center and orchids surround it.
For a natural look, replace poles holding orchids upright with branches. Tie together loosely with twine.
Fill in tray around pots with bubble packaging, then keep adding packaging to form a mound.
Cover bubble packaging with moss.
Keep out of direct light and heat. Mist moss at least once a day. Water orchids with a long spouted watering can as needed.
