Since Mother’s Day is tomorrow, I wanted show you how to arrange flowers. Okay, after you have chosen what flowers and vase you want to use, the next step is to arrange the stems. I bought all my flowers from Traders Joe. It is super cheap! Anyways, fill your vase with cold water and use floral food. Cut the stems to the size of the vase. You can cut some of the stems a bit longer and a few stems a couple inches shorter. As you arrange, this will help you create grouping that appears to be more full and rounded. Before putting any flowers into the vase, strip the stems of all leaves that will be under the water. Removing the leaves from the stems will help the water last longer.

Criss-cross the stems so they will help support each other. Remember to vary your blooms, but keep the longest stems in the middle of your arrangement. The shortest stems should remain towards the rim of the vase. There you have it! Now you got yourself an arrangement that is half the price. Remember to change the water frequently to stop the growth of bacteria and prevent your water from turning green. By following these simple steps, you will be able to create a beautiful floral arrangement for mother’s day, your home, or to even surprise a loved one for the next occasion. I hope these tips will help your arrangements! Have a great mother’s day weekend and I will talk to you soon.
