[Magazine ad showing two different bouquets]

Description: Magazine ad showing two different bouquets.

To enjoy these longer, coat lower surface with a plastic spray or ordinary liquid glue. This reduces dehydration and the stiffening keeps leaf from curling. Caption under bottom photograph reads: "To add soft vines and short-stemmed flowers to your shallow trays of fruit and vegetables, insert stems into plastic water picks and hide picks among the fruits. Combine as many fruit forms as possible for easy arrangement. The pineapple in this picture is stuck on a needle holder to keep it at desired angle."
