Here are three steps to help you create a beautiful flower arrangement at home.

Step 1: Choose your flowers and vase.

Let’s get started with choosing the perfect flowers and vase for your arrangement. This season is all about color, so why not mix and match different hues to create a stunning bouquet? I’m loving the vibrant shades of pink, orange, and yellow for my arrangements.

As for vases, I prefer clear glass or ceramic vases that allow the beauty of the blooms to shine through. Either one works fine, the best part of this creative activity is that you can do this YOUR way, there are really no rules!

Step 2: Prepare your flowers.

Before you begin arranging your flowers, it’s essential to prepare them properly. First, remove any leaves or thorns that will be below the waterline in your vase. This will prevent bacteria growth, which can shorten the life of your flowers. Next, cut the stems. If you have roses, for example, you’ll want to cut your stems at a 45-degree angle, allowing them to absorb more water and nutrients to stay fresh for longer.

Step 3: Arrange your flowers.

It’s time to let your creativity flow and arrange your colorful roses and lilies. Start by adding greenery to the vase, such as ferns or eucalyptus, to create a natural-looking base for your flowers. Then, add your larger blooms, like the roses, to the arrangement. Next, fill in the gaps with smaller blooms, such as the lilies, to create a full and balanced arrangement.

Lastly, MUST ADD WATER! You can also add bleach, ice cubes, and flower food to your water to keep your flowers fresh longer. Change the water every few days to help your flowers stay fresh longer.

As you arrange your flowers, think about the overall shape and height of your bouquet. You can create a symmetrical look with the focal point in the center or an asymmetrical look with varying heights.
