It’s How To Monday, so in the spirit of Valentine’s Day, or beauty in general, why not make your own flower arrangements instead of buying them for usually double the price from large retail flower shops. If you live in the Los Angeles area (although I’m sure your city or town has something similar) there’s a flower mart in Downtown Los Angeles open to the public where you can get a wide variety of flowers at wholesale prices so you can even afford to make a large vase!

This would be a great addition to your home, and also makes a great gift. Here’s a video I found on Video Jug on how to make a simple, but elegant floral arrangement.
