Floral arrangement tips

  1. Before cutting the flowers, hold stems next to the vase to determine the length.
  2. Add small white flowers first.
  3. Add peonies and daffodils, dangling flowers over one side to make it asymmetrical.
  4. Add a few wild, unexpected shoots of stems, buds or leaves.
