How to make a smashing, pro-looking bouquet for the weekend.

It’s not just reserved for celebrities and rich folks. You can also keep fresh flowers (and you should) in your home. Here’s a tip of how to do it for as little as possible (without sneaking around in the neighbors flowerbed).

What’s your flowery tip (It’s a scientific fact that we learn in interaction so let’s get some learning on!)?

You don’t want your stems to have too many leafs on them, leafs in a vase with water makes the water muddy.

So what you want to do is to remove some with a sharp knife (always point down, away from yourself).

When this is done, it’s time to start making a bouquet. Put them in your left hand (or in your right if you’re a lefty) and start putting them in the order you feel will be beautiful. You put them in a spiral. When all of your flowers are used (or you feel like your bouquet is all nice and done) you will have stems in different lengths.

It’s easy to take care of this with a knife (preferably the same sharp one as used before), slice the flowers one at a time, in a tilted maner, until all flowers are the same length. Then take a twine and wrap around the stems three times and then you can put the bouquet down and tie a knot.
