Prep stems by removing greens from the bottom half and trimming to equal lengths. Trim to size, using the height of your container to determine the length (you can adjust when assembling).
Choose a rectangular moss base. Submerge in water for three minutes. Punch holes if necessary (if there is a plastic cover).
Using the most voluminous flowers, such as hydrangea, create a base for your arrangement. Add texture with succulents, clean their roots first. Pepper in small pops of color with foliage, such as bittersweet branches.
Turn your bouquet 360° to make sure everything looks even. If you'll be placing it in the center if your table, it's important that it does. Fill in any holes with spare stems.Source: LEAFtv
