    Florist Margret Flis shares her techniques for making a contemporary flower arrangement.

    Margaret Flis: Today I'm going to show you how to make a bubble bowl arrangement. What I've chosen for this arrangement are hydrangea, gerber daisies, and roses. We'll also be using a few types of greenery; you're now going to preparing your flowers. Each stem needs to be clean; you want to take all the foliage off that's going to fall below the water line in your vase.

    You have your bubble bowl vase and you want to add your river rocks before you add your water. Go ahead and just put a few in the bottom, then you want to add your water, we're going to fill the vase about three-quarters of the way up. We're going to go ahead and start putting our flowers in. We'll start with the Hydrangea, I'm going to go ahead and take them, get them in a good amount, kind of measure it up, do a good snip, place them in. What you want is for the head of the Hydrangea to sit right on the lip of the vase.

    The next step is going to be to add greenery. This is the Variegated Pit, next we'll go ahead and add some of the Bupleurum, the next flower to add will be your roses, and what you want to do is kind of have one in the center and three around the edge, because if we're using this as a center piece you want it to be interesting from all sides. Then we're going to add our mini gerber daisies, these will go in the spaces in between your roses, and then you have your bubble bowl arrangement.
