Don’t kiss these frogs….not one Prince will appear. Before the wide spread of Oasis floral foam, flower frogs of all sorts were the beginnings of every arrangement. In the 1920’s, 30’s and 40’s, these holders for the stems of cut flowers often took fantastic forms and were as pretty as the flowers themselves. Stems were inserted in the holes provided. They were called frogs because they sat in the water.
Today’s utilitarian flower needle holders have many sharp needles on which to impale a stem. They, too, come in many shapes and sizes. Some above have a cup to hold water. The plastic one, right front, has suction cups so it can sit in a tight spot.
