Here are some easy steps to remember when making a bouquet…
- Always recut stems on a slant and place them in 2 or 3 inches of warm water for an hour before arranging
- Remove any leaves which may be submerged in water
- Place the tallest thinnest plant material to make an outline shape, and then begin to fill in with larger plant material.
- Your flowers should be the focal part of your design so place the largest and brightest in the centre towards the bottom of the arrangement, and fade the colour out to the edges
