So your going to bring your grocery store or florist purchased plants home, funny post now what! I have seen many people just plunk them in a vase of water and that’s it. Sometimes that works but here are some simple tips to help you look like you’re a pro at it.

1. In a clean flower vase, take your greens first, snip the ends off to the size you want and then start criss crossing the comes to the vase so that you have stems all around inside the vase. There are two reasons for this. One is because you now have a base for the flower arrangement and two; a criss cross of stems makes it easier for flower placement.

2. If you are making a small , low arrangement, slide in the flowers in a criss cross so that the arises are all around the inside of the vase. You should now have a vase with a ring of flowers on the out side and nothing but stems showing in the middle. (The more stems you have in the vase, the easier it will be to get flowers stay put! ) The rows of flowers are going to be higher each time you get them in until you have a nice rounded arrangement.

3. If you are making a tall arrangement, then use a tall slim classic vase. Your flowers will hold up better but it will surely look well proportioned. Great plants to use are gladiolas, blue delphinium, lilies, snapdragons etc. Sometimes you can get tall tulips and this looks fantastic too.

4. A design mistake I use often seen is placing the flowers in a vase completely even. The particular reason this does not work is because it looks unpleasant. Have a look at any garden and you may see some of the blossoms are sticking out, some are tucked in; some are almost hidden but still contribute to the overall look. Mimic character and you won’t make a mistake! Don’t be afraid to tuck some of those flowers in a little.

5. A good rule of thumb is to use odd numbers of flowers. What I imply by that is to use 3 roses together or 5. Even figures are not as effective. If you use 5 roses for example , Place 3 together (touching but at slightly different lengths) close to the bottom center of the vase and then two more higher up.

6th. The next best advice I will give you if you actually are new at floral design, is to collect pictures of floral arrangements you prefer and with the tips I’ve mentioned above, practice while looking at the pictures. Before long, you’ll keep an eye out like a pro!
