Lessons to Learn When Shopping for an Interior Decorator _ Although interior decorating can be fun, there are so many principles to a well_decorated home that it is often wise to rely on a professional. Since financing your decorator can be a task all of its own, we recommend you shop around before you choose one. Because interior decorating is so based on your own opinions, it is important that you get samples, ideas, and possible references for the interior decorator. Interior decorators should have a book, a website, or a pamphlet showing their previous work with other clients. Also, asking the interior decorator for referrals from past clients is always a good idea. You will want to ask past clients about the type of service that they received, the creative ability of the interior designer, and the promptness of the work completed. Guidelines such as these ensure that your interior decorator will have exactly what you are looking for.
Putting it all together _ Once you have selected your flowers and vase, its time to start putting things together. If possible, first cut each flower stem diagonally about one inch from the bottom while holding the end of the stem under warm water. Use your kitchen sink or a large basin. This helps ensure each stem will absorb moisture and nutrients easily. As you cut each flower, transfer it to a temporary "work" vase, which should be halfway full of water.
