Green and White Seasonal Arrangement

Begin by conditioning the flowers: Cut the stems at a 45-degree angle, and remove any foliage that will fall below the waterline.
Place the flowers in a deep container filled with room-temperature water and cut-flower preservative.
Store in a cool location overnight. (Once conditioned, blooms will be stronger, stiffer, and better able to withstand the stresses of arranging.)
Fill a clean vase one-third with water, add flower food, and arrange flowers. To keep your arrangement fresh, change the water daily.
