Cut flowers from your yard for the arrangement, or unwrap your grocery store blossoms. Pull the bottom set of leaves from each stem, then cut on a bias using scissors or floral shears.
Tip: The arrangement will look best with a variety of flower heights. Cut an inch or two from the bottom of each bloom, then adjust as necessary when you begin to assemble the arrangement.
Fill Water Tubes
Fill each plastic water tube, then add one prepared flower to each tube. Now you're ready to assemble the arrangement.
Assemble and Enjoy
Press each flower through the wheatgrass layer and into the floral foam, moving the flowers as necessary to create a pleasing arrangement.
Tip: Place thicker-stalked flowers in the back of the arrangement, and softer-stemmed flowers like tulips on the front and sides of the crate.
Store in a cool place out of direct sunlight until you're ready to use, then place in the center of your Mother's Day table and enjoy. For best results, add the flowers to the arrangement the day you plan to use the centerpiece. Depending on the flowers used, the arrangement can last between three days and one week. Remove the flowers and replenish the water tubes to extend the life of your centerpiece.
