Prepare the Stems

Cut the stems of all the flowers low enough to fit the vessel you intend to place them in and prune the stems with shears. 

Arrange and Finish

Add water to your chosen vase. Group the desired flowers by hand, secure them with a rubber band and place them in the vase. Now you have a beautiful arrangement fit for any room or occasion— without breaking the bank!
