Place your flowers in room-temperature water when you get home until you’re ready to arrange them properly. When you’re ready, lay everything out that you’ll need. I like to use the paper wrapping the florist gives me as a work surface- makes for easy cleanup.
You’re going to need flowers, a vase filled with water (and flower food) and gardening shears (or really strong scissors).
I measured each stem to the height I wanted. (I wanted them on the shorter side because I didn’t want them to overpower or hide the other items in the gift basket they were going in).
Then I trimmed each stem.
To achieve a natural and casual look, I kept the leafy green stems longer for an uneven and natural effect. I also grouped similar colors together so it wasn’t too “cookie cutter” or stuffy looking.
Here’s a pinterest strip for easy pinning!
