Tips and Tricks: Arranging Fall Flowers

The flowers in grocery stores have so much potential.  But every time I bring them home they always end up looking sad and wimpy.  How can I bring the best out of these flowers? 

I headed to FlowerSchool NY in midtown to find out. Director Eileen Johnson and floral instructor Calvert Crary gave me an array of tips from deciding which flowers to pick, to selecting strong colors, arranging tips, and the proper tools to use. It’s amazing at what we did with a $20 assortment of grocery store flowers! —Sharon Beesley
