Using floral scissors, trim the tree fern, cutting off the long feathery to a close cropped look.
The fern is lightweight and easy to cut.
This fern is only intended as a base to conceal the foam that will peek out between the roses inserted later.
Don't worry about being perfect, it takes only a minute or two to trim the tree fern.
Trim the greens so it is close enough that the blue tulle shows and is longer.
