  2. Find a Suitable Vase: Choose a vase that is tall enough to support the height of your olive branches. You may want to consider a clear glass vase to showcase the natural beauty of the branches.

  3. Fill with Water: Fill the vase with cool water. The water should be changed every two to three days to keep the branches fresh.

  4. Add a Little Something Extra: To add a touch of creativity and personalization to your arrangement, you can add additional elements to the vase. Consider adding a few small stones, decorative pebbles, or a sprig of rosemary.

  5. Placement Matters: Place your olive branches in a location that is out of direct sunlight and away from heat sources. You can also add a few ice cubes to the water to help keep the branches fresh for longer.

  6. Enjoy Your Beautiful Arrangement: With a little bit of care, your fresh cut olive tree branches will stay beautiful for weeks to come. Take the time to appreciate the natural beauty of your arrangement and enjoy the calming presence it brings to your home.
