Flower Arranging Made Easy

I've never been very good at these types of things. I love having pretty flowers in the house, but never really knew how to arrange and care for them. They never seem to last long. I was thrilled when an opportunity came up to review a flower arranging DVD from Flower Duet.

The DVD "How to Create a European Wrap Bouquet" will teach you how to put together a gorgeous bouquet. It would be perfect for a wedding, if you are a DIY type of gal. It teaches you everything you need to know from how to pick out fresh flowers and make them last to how to arrange them beautifully.

I really wanted to put together a replica of one of their bouquets to show my readers how easy it really is. I mean, if I can manage to do it, so can you. However, I went flower shopping numerous times and I was unable to find the flowers I wanted to use anywhere where I live. So, I decided to go a different route. I had my husband pick up two regular old super market mixed bouquets.

I used Flower Duets information to condition the flowers and their tips to make them last. What do you know, after a WEEK they are still looking gorgeous! I've never had such luck in keeping flowers from wilting and looking terrible. I think that the Flower Duet DVD taught me what I need to know to make it work from now on.

I can't say that I made the most gorgeous arrangement, but I think I did okay with what I had to work with.

So, How would you like to win this DVD? The fabulous Flower Duet Team is offering one lucky reader a chance to win one!

  1. It's so hard to choose a favorite flower, but I love bachelor's buttons.

  2. Oh, I forgot. I need this DVD, because I can't arrange flowers at all. Even when I put a single flower in a vase, it looks lame....
