How to Beautifully Arrange Flowers

Wednesday, February 12, 2014

Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, couples and singles: Know what tomorrow is? It’s Valentine’s Day. Along with this love-laden holiday comes the exchange of gifts, namely flowers.

CNN reported that an estimated 224 million roses are grown in anticipation of Valentine’s Day. Additionally, Americans spend nearly $2 billion dollars just on flowers.

Whether you’re on the giving or receiving end, you want your flowers to look like a million bucks – without spending that much.  This year, make your gift of flowers blossom with the help of a rubber band.

Cut the stems to just above the height of the vase to make a pretty ball arrangement. Then bunch the flower heads together with a rubber band.

Voila! Ladies, be sure to apply this technique to put your flowers’ beauty on display. Fellas, we encourage you to go the extra mile and use this trick to arrange your Valentine’s flowers yourself.

What are some other Valentine’s gifts you have given/received before?
