The simplest flower arrangements sometimes are the most striking. They also allow for the greatest flexibility in achieving unique looks. Try carnations to get you started.
- Before you begin, prepare your container, or containers, with fresh water and floral food according to the directions on the packet. Arrange individual flower stems in your hand to form a mounded shape. Add more stems to get the size you want.
- Tie them all together using a green chenille stem or pipe cleaner. If you want a more formal look, use ribbon or raffia.
- Trim off the bottom of the stems so they are all the same length. Depending on the vase you choose and the length you cut the stems, you can create a variety of looks.
