To care for this arrangement, change the water and recut daily. Also, add floral food and keep blooms in a cool space, which will keep it lasting longer.

  1. Select flowers. On today's show we used dahlias, callas, colius, berries, eucalyptus, cotinus, chocolate cosmos, scabiosa, orchids, seed pods, succulents, and tillandsias.

  2. Start with a base of foliage or branches to anchor the blooms; build on it to create a full bouquet. Also, keep the color palette simple and monochromatic. When arranging the flowers in the vase, remember to keep it simple.
