 Arrangement Instructions:

1.  Gather blue, white and red carnations.  NOTE:  We found our bouquet at Publix supermarket for $7.99.

2.  Cut your stems, at an angle, for a desired length.

3.  Add more color by layering with fruit.  NOTE:  To preserve the fruit life use a cylinder, inner vase, and insert the stems.  In doing so, the fruit life is extended by not immersing in water.

4.  Add water to desired level and your ready to display!
