Thee flower holders in a bouquet are very important. The foam is wet in water, and then the stems of the flowers are buried in them, so that a continuous source of water is provided to the flowers to remain alive and fresh. If not this then containers must be your choice. In bouquet the container could be anything that you wish your bouquet to be looking like. In a bouquet the container could be a basket with foam at its base, while in a vase the container could be just anything that is capable of holding water. Choose the container on the basis of arrangement you want to give to the flowers. If you want the flowers to be getting a small cozy bush type look, its suggested to use small round pots, but if you have long stems and you want to have a taller arrangement with sparse flowers, look for thin neck tall vases.

Now when your vessel is decided, get in action and clean it up very carefully with on leave or petal left inside. Next fill the vase with fresh water at room temperature and add some flower food to it. If your vase is tall, try to tie the flowers together just above the height of the vase. Cut the stems in proper length and angle so that they could live longer in the vase.
