Oh hey, darling bouquet of pink peonies. How we would love to set you right up in our favorite vase. If only we knew where to cut your stems… Oh wait, there’s a super-easy way.
Step 1: Lay the vase on its side.
Step 2: Hold the flowers right above the vase--horizontally--so the tops “stick out” above the lip of the vase at just the right height. Feel free to readjust a bloom here and there to get the whole thing exactly the way you like it.
Step 3: Snip the stems right along the bottom of the vase.
Step 4: Voilà! When you turn the vase upright and place the peonies inside, they’ll pop out at just the right height.
