it is quite simple to create a pretty arrangement with only a few steps. if you use an extra vase in the process for the excess stems, there is hardly any clean-up. be sure to use sharp scissors and cut stems at varying heights, snipping inches at a time. trust your artistic eye and take a minimalist approach if you are an amateur like me. the more natural they look, the better.
