>> For Your Home: For office or home decoration, consider arranging artificial flowers in a pot or vase. Gather all the supplies, such as a glass vase, artificial greenery (ferns, leaves, etc), small fillers, and silk flowers of at least three colors.
Selecting the flower types (sunflowers, hydrangeas, tulips, roses, mums, etc.) is up to you, but ensure that the size of the vase is proportionate with that of the flowers. To begin with the flower arrangement, keep all the supplies on a flat working table. Check the lengths of the flowers and greenery, and adjust if necessary.
Start placing some greenery on the sides of the vase, making sure that their height reaches the rim. Insert the flowers one-by-one according to their color, size, and texture. Do not overcrowd them or it will look messy.
