  • 1 Rectangular Vase
  • Floral Food
  • Floral Shears/Floral Knife
  • 3 Succulent Plants for extra design flair

Step 1

  • Add Water and Flower Food to the Vase.

Step 2

  • Use an Aspidistra Leaf to enhance design and hide mechanics.
  • Cut the stem off and wrap on the inside of the vase.

Step 3

  • Clean the foliage off the bottom of the stems, so that nothing hits the water level. This will prevent bacteria from growing and shortening the length of flower life.

Step 4

  • Add the Purple Kale first – This will create the base of the design.
  • Gently fold the leaves back to broaden the design and maximize the look and shape of the Kale. 

Step 5

  • Add in the Textured Fillers, such as Thistle and Dianthus.

Step 6

  • Continue adding flowers to the design.
  • Keep in mind to evenly space your flowers and colors for an all around design.

Step 7

  • Cluster the succulent plants around your design and enjoy!
  • Remember to cut the stems every couple of days and change the water, so that you get the maximum vase life of your flowers.
