Find a vessel that is unique, but yet conforms to your decor. If you have a long table, choose a vessel that is similar in shape.
In contrast, if you have a round table, select a tall urn. The rounded shape of an urn will work seamlessly with the shape of the round table and will help draw the eye upward.
Most flowers purchased from a store will come with floral food. If not, pick it up from your local greenhouse, grocer, or hardware.
Start with all the "cheap" extras before moving onto your flowers. Placing more of the inexpensive (or free) items will ensure that you do not need as many of the higher-priced flowers.
