Think to Scale

Keep the flowers proportionate to the size of the container. “A general rule of thumb is that the stem should be one and a half times the height of the vase,” McDaniel says. In other words, if the vessel is 8 inches high, the flowers should rise 4 inches above the lip of the vase. For pave arrangements, which are full and short, snip stems so that the blossoms rest just above the opening.
