Hi, I'm Karen Rodowicz of JK Flowers. I'm here to show you how to make a single, simple flower bouquet. The first thing you need to start off with is what kind of flower you're going to use. Make sure you use a flower that's got a straight stem like a rose, a carnation, something that will hold straight up for your bud vase. Next thing you want to decide is what kind of greenery you're going to use. Do you want a fern leaf? Would you like to use some of the leaves that come with the flower that you've picked? These are all different ideas you can choose. Do you want to pick something out of your garden, or are you just going to the little local fresh market? These are some of the ideas that you can do to make your simple, single flower bouquet. Once you've picked your flower, as you can see I have a rose here, you want to put it in your bud vase. You want to cut the bottom of the stem on an angle like this, so it takes to the water. After that, you add your fern in the back. If you want to make it a little fancier, you can add a little ribbon. I hope this was helpful. I'm Karen Rodowicz of JK Flowers.
