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.
You can also make a huge wonderful bouquet for the dining table. Add candles around it or even inside it to give a stunning look. Small flowers can also be used to make outside decorations on a candle, even dried flowers look so beautiful and soothing to the eyes. You just have to dry some flowers, glue them on a transparent sheet and then wrap the sheet around candles. Flowers can also make wonderful Christmas gifts. Another idea is to use flower decorations on the place around the tree and a few paces in front of it.
