3 small jars or juice glasses (approximately 3-inches tall x 2-inches in diameter)

One 4-inch fern or other living green plant

3 stems purple mums

4 stems green button mums

3 stems 'intuition' or red roses

3 stems green hyperacid

Step 2 - Cut the flowers to approximately 4-inches in length and insert them into the water glasses. If desired rubber band the bouquets together.

Step 3 - Mix the hypericum with the orange standard carnations and the roses with the green button mums. The heads of all flowers should be at the same height.

Step 4 - Place the flowers and plant into the basket. One bouquet will be inserted into the empty clay pot, which also goes inside the basket.
