How to bring nature inside
Cut the stems
First things first. And when making your floral creation, first thing you should do is cut the stems, preferably at a 45-degree angle creating a bigger surface for the flower’s water intake and to make them last longer. If you have flowers with woodier stems, it’s a good idea to gently smash the ends a bit to help them absorb the water better. And both for aesthetic and practical reasons you should remove all the leaves below the waterline.
