View Full Version : flower arrangement for dummies

Hi all,

Recently, just pick up an interest for floral arrangement. (want to get in tune with my feminine side, you know ;) ) Anyway, I know that I don't really have a natural talent for it. BUT, I've discovered a fast way on the net to arrange these rebelious stalks into a presentable order. So here goes:

1.) trim yr stalks to appropriate height of yr vase.

2.) pour water in and some bleach to extend the freshness of the flowers

3.) criss-cross the scotch tapes to form grid at the mouth of the vase (I think those trained florists are going to kill me for this!)

4.) insert in yr flowers accordingly and the tapes will hold it.

This method is especially useful if yr vase opening is too wide. Use flowers with big and lush petals if not leave some foliage (leaves) so as to hide the tapes.

Its seems to be very cool and awesome. I haven't tried it yet but intend to do so.
I always wonder about the confidence of the people about their new ideas. With how much confidence they present their thoughts, while I can't.
What do you say about it. I always find myself shy about it and couldn't do
any progress in my like.
