As we see a move from using floral foam (an invention from the 1950's) we are seeing an increased use of flower frogs as a method of securing flowers and foliage.

Used for many years in Japanese flower arranging (Ikebana) for minimal designs, the flower frog dates back to the 14th century.

It is thought that the name comes from the fact that the "flower frog" sits in water, just the same as a frog might!

A flower frog is heavy to anchor the design in the container.   With the right type of frog you can turn any container or dish into a vase.
