How do I arrange my flowers?- Flowers 101

This will take some practice to achieve the look and style of arrangement you desire. The best advice is to practice and to attempt to keep your stems as long as possible. You can always cut off more stem, but it is impossible to add stems back on fresh flowers that have been cut too short. A casual style of loosely arranged flowers is very much in style right now. Work on creating a focal area or grouping of flowers that will draw your attention to the center of the design. Many books have been written about specific flower design techniques so consult your local library or flower seller.
