EVERLASTING FLOWERS ARRANGEMENT
Everlasting flower arrangements are trending today. The idea is to freeze their enduring beauty and save energy in their maintenance. Everlasting roses can be placed in a glass vase by grouping them with baby breath, a delicate soft bunch of flowers. You can group a few stems with roses and place them on your coffee table. You can place this arrangement in glass square boxes, vases or even envelopes.
FRESH FLOWERS ARRANGEMENT
For fresh flowers, you first need to condition them by removing any additional lower leaves on the stem or any thorns. Cut the stems of the flowers using scissors at a 45 degree angle and plunge them in cool water before you are ready with the look of your display. Also, remember to change the water daily.
