To make this arrangement, I start with a shallow glass bowl and fill it with red gems. Next I place about 13 paperwhites into the gems and fill the bowl with water to the top of the bulb. I place the bowl in a warm place for 2 weeks and then move it to a room with indirect, bright sunlight. As the stalks get taller I tie them with a Christmas ribbon, otherwise the weight of the flowers topple them over. It also looks very festive with the ribbon. Enjoy. Hope you can can get them started for this holiday season.
