Don’t worry if it gets all mixed up, you’ll still end up with a glorified mess. You need to know the basics though. All freshly harvested flowers stems should be immersed in water so they can continuously give nourishment to the flowers. Cut them in such a way that it’s taller than, or ideally twice as tall, as your vase or container. Allow the flowers to stay in a cool and shady place for a while before putting it on its designated place.
Flower vases complement the beauty of your flowers. You can use old mugs as vases. The more vintage looking your mugs are, the more exotic your arrangement will be. Clear bottles can also be used as vases for long-stemmed flowers. Bowls can be used for floating flowers. You can use big bowls as centerpieces or small bowls as accents.
