Flower arrangements are gorgeous, but they’re also not as easy as you might think to create. Buying them can get quite pricey, but if you give these 6 tricks a try, you’ll be bundling bouquets like a pro.

These tips can help you know just how to display your flowers in a simple, yet beautiful way, and in most cases, these tips will help keep your flowers looking fresh for longer periods of time.

1. Keep Them Looking Fresh

Especially if you’re gifting a bouquet, you need to make sure you can keep them perky throughout the transport. According to the Say Yes blog, all you have to do is place a dampened paper towel around the bottom of the stems, and then wrap that in saran wrap. Then, wrap them up all pretty and make someone’s day with a bouquet of fresh flowers.
