Foolproof Flower Arrangements
Impress your dinner guests -- or create something to enjoy yourself -- with six simple, budget-friendly arrangement ideas.
Even if you want to make a statement, a simple arrangement can do the trick. Just a few stems of cymbidium orchids (in a low glass vase filled with rocks) looks more elaborate than it is. Remember to use stems with more than one bloom, and if you keep the water clean, this arrangement should last from four to six weeks.
Ideal spot: Place it on the table where the cocktails are served, surrounded by votive candles.
