Condition your flowers overnight in lukewarm water.  When cutting the stems, always cut them diagonally.

Start by taking a winding piece of jasmine and placing it toward the bottom of the vase. Place a tall, spirea stem opposite and diagonal to the jasmine (like an S). Let the curve of these stems, be the guide to the shape of your arrangement. Place the lilac parallel to these stems.

Next, place a blown open ranunculus at the base of the curving jasmine stem.

Then add more sprawling, jasmine, and spirea. Fill in the holes with narcissus. Keep away from direct sunlight, drafts, old fruit and food and check the water!
