REGARDLESS of the price, you can make any flower bouquet look luxurious using a simple hack.
A content creator demonstrated her flower-arranging trick for her followers.
In her video, TikTok user Ashley Paige (@ashley.paiige) showed viewers "how to make grocery store roses look [professional]."
First, the TikToker gave an example of how not to display your flowers.
Ashley showed her audience a vase of long-stemmed roses with closed petals.
She then revealed the method she uses to elevate an affordable bouquet.
"This is how you’re going to make $9 roses from Trader Joe’s look super luxurious," Ashley said.
She explained: "Step one, you’re going to remove all of the greenery, this is just going to help with making things look a little bit cleaner.
"And it’s also going to help your flowers last longer otherwise that’s going to rot in the water," the content creator added.
Ashley also recommended cutting the flower stems at an angle to prolong their life.

She explained that this technique helps the bouquet to absorb more water.
The TikToker continued: "Then you’re going to place the rose in your hands upside down and roll it back and forth."
Demonstrating the method, Ashley told viewers: "This is going to gently open up the flowers a little bit."
For her next step, she showed her followers a tip she learned from a professional florist.
The influencer began to "gently reflex the rose" by peeling back the petals to open up the flower.
She explained: "It also helps with not having to buy as many flowers because it makes the rose obviously quite a bit bigger."
Ashley then revealed how she prepares her vase for her new arrangement.
She said: "I’m not fancy at all, I just use Scotch tape to grid out my vase and then I use the flower food that comes with it and a tablespoon of bleach with my water.
"The bleach is what is going to make this last for a month or so," Ashley told viewers.
As a finishing touch, she added ranunculus, calla lilies, and orchids to her arrangement.
TikTok users took to the comments section to share their thoughts on the hack.
"OK, I feel like I found a new hobby," wrote one impressed follower.

Another viewer said: "I’m going to do this, for sure. These look beautiful!"
"I do this all the time! The tape grid is key. It keeps them in place and makes them look way more full," commented a third person.
