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.
A gift basket is fun to put together and even more fun to give. All you need to do is find a basket or a Christmas container and put a few things in it. Some things that you could put in the gift basket include, a bud vase with a single flower, such as a red Gerber daisy, rose, or lily, a Christmas movie, a Christmas book, Christmas tree ornaments, holiday cookie cutters, and/or treats. First attach the bud vase in the container with floral clay. Then, if you use a wicker basket, use some festive Christmas tissue paper or other pretty paper to line it. Last arrange the gift items in the basket so it looks pretty and appealing. This would make a great gift for a coworker, teacher, sibling, or that person who just seems to have everything.
