DIY Flower Arrangment from Ovando

2 stems of dogwood
6 heads of purple vanda orchids
1 succulent
1 vase 9 x 1.5 x 6

1. Fill your vase with water.
2. Measure your dogwood against the length of the vase and trim to fit. Each trimmed segment must maintain enough friction against the sides of the vase so as to be suspended within the vase. Then, gently push your dogwood down into vase, leaving enough space in between each piece so that there is a feeling of space and weightlessness within the vase.

3. Attach your succulent using bind-wire.
4. Cut the vanda orchid heads off the stem, being sure to leave at least 2 inches of stem remaining. The orchid stems should be able reach down into the vase to drink water.
5. Place the vanda orchids lying along the top of the vase. Primp as necessary so that the mouths of each orchid head are facing in the proper direction.
