These sweet gifts are the perfect way to salvage the graduation season. To start, place your order with a terrific florist. I love working with Fabulous Florals for quality and attention to detail.

You'll also need the perfect container. I worked with a local Vermont artist, Bobbie Platt. Bobbie's pottery is gorgeous and her mugs ($30-$50) are a gift that will last long after the flowers. For your graduate, the mugs will become vessels for caffeine on late night study sessions. Contact Bobbie ( to place your order.

In addition to the video, here are a few more tips. 

  1. Let the flowers open overnight before you start arranging.
  2. As soon as you get the flowers, trim the stems and place in fresh water.
