You may start by placing your foliage that you will use in a water vase. You have to make sure that you keep it around the lips or edges. Stick with the plan to place them the lips or edges of your water vase with a layer of your Foliage. When it is too big or too thick, it ends up detracting from your cut flowers. And if it is small or too thin, visual contrast will not show.
The one thing we often miss while using flower decorations on Christmas is the Christmas tree itself. This is because there are so many other decorations for the tree that we don't want to overdo it using flowers as well. This Christmas, why not try another idea to use flowers as decoration, instead of other things? You can use small red and green buds to make it beautiful and more presentable.
