In this video tutorial, we show you a technique on how to cut up a Baby's Breath branch for a centerpiece arrangement. This technique will come quite handy if you are planning to use Baby's Breath in a low centerpiece arrangement because it will maximize the number of cuttings that you will get out of 1 stem.
Baby's Breath is a filler flower. Filler flowers are characterized by having many smaller stems that branch off the main stem. And hence, the florets grow on many different layers or planes.
If you want to arrange a low round centerpiece and you are looking to create a solid mass, having stems with florets that grow on different levels is not ideal. That's why you need to cut up these branches in such a way that most of the florets are on the same level.
Besides Baby's Breath, you can apply this technique to any filler or branch material.
