Next, fill your "real" vase about two_thirds of the way with warm water. Make sure it doesn't leak. Add flower food if available. (Follow the instructions on the packet.) Place a few of your larger blossom flowers in the vase and step back. This will give you a better idea of how to proportion your bouquet. If the stems are too long, simply cut them shorter. If they are too short, try a different container, or add pebbles or marbles to the bottom of the vase to elevate your flowers.
Giving flower buds as a floral gift is less common than flower arrangements and bouquets. The significance of flower buds is their symbolism of natural fresh beauty and is commonly given amongst the youth. The benefit of flower buds as a gift is that lasts longer and the receiver has the opportunity to see how the flower blooms.
