    Step 2
    Drop a Heavy Weights™  into the basket either side of the Oasis
    Step 3
    Using the Mini Cool Aire® "Dual ProTM" on the Low Pressure Foil inflation (that is when the large foil adapter is taken off the nozzle holder and put onto nozzle for inflation) inflate the Mother's Day foil

    Step 5
    Push the Maxi stick ll into th middle of the Oasis, and then add the balloon and cup to it
    Step 6

    Step 7
    Make a daisy using the White 160

    Push a saddle stick into an uninflate 160 Lime green, so the neck just stops below the saddle
    Step 9
    Push the saddle stick into the middle of the daisy
    Step 10
    Inflate the 5" pink to about 1", knot and wrap into the front of the daisy
    Step 11
    Repeat step 10 and tie in on the other side of the daisy, over the top of the saddle so it is hidden
    Step 12

    Step 16
    Take a 160 Lime Green and cut in half,and then inflate fully( cut the balloon in half so the inflation is quicker), size the balloon to about 5" and tie off, then "pick" into the Oasis around the base of the daisies
