You will need to have purchased a spiked vase for you to go about this. These are available from a number of sources such as from the craft stores near Memorial Day and as well you can find them from your florists. Fact is that you can actually use any kind of vase for this need but the reason for the advocating for the spiked vases is the fact that they have been specially designed to anchor well enough and as such are much more easier to work with for this purpose.
You will as well need the floral oasis foam. You will need to cut this to the appropriate size so as to ensure that it fits inside the vase. Ideally, aim for such a smug fit so as to make sure that it doesn’t come loose inside the vase. This is then followed with the soaking of the foam with water until it is fully saturated and then have the same, the cavity of the vase filled with the foam.
Once this is done with, the next step to take is to choose the main flowers that you will be using for your flower arrangement. As far as the preparation of the flowers go, make sure that you have these cut at angle with the aim being to create a point.

When you are then done with this, it is now time for you to think of any added extras that you may need for the perfect memorial flower arrangements. These are such as greenery to conceal the edges of the vase, blooms to add color and texture, and embellishments such as ribbons and the miniature items.
