When mom gets her flowers on Mother’s Day, they’ll look a little like this:

They’re beautiful in their simplicity, but you might not think about all the work that goes into crafting the perfect flower bouquet.

That’s where I step intrying my hand at creating floral arrangements.

I had no clue where to start. Fortunately, I was given a model bouquet to help me get going.

But even with some visual guidance, I had a lot of questions:
