How to make a Chinese takeout floral arrangement

I grew up working in my family’s Chinese restaurant, so I know firsthand the love affair between Jews and Chinese food. For everyone who likes to serve Cantonese cuisine at home, here’s a festive floral arrangement in a takeout container that’s a “wok” in the park to make. I’ve made these for birthday presents, hostess gifts and even centerpieces. The only problem is that a half-hour after creating the arrangement, you’ll be hungry to make another one.

What you’ll need:

  • 1-quart takeout container
  • 1-pint plastic deli container
  • Floral foam
  • Knife
  • Flowers
  • Chopsticks


1. Get a takeout container
