Forage only with permission
It's great to get out and cut stems in nature, but only go where you have permission. So that means no public parks or your neighbors prized rose bush.
Take only what you think you will need and no more. Also, watch out to avoid cutting endangered species.
Branches or plants that accentuate long graceful lines
These are elements that add character and personality to a design. Examples might include curly willow, pine boughs, ornamental grasses and anything that might give you an extended line.

These add weight and create an area of interest in the center of the design. Examples might include Hydrangea, Sedum, Dahlias, Queen Anne’s Lace and Sunflowers.

Nothing completes a design better than a few well executed accessories. It is easy to discover these gems. Here are a few examples:
