There is nothing more beautiful than flowers in bloom arranged artfully in a delicate, crystal vase. Do you want to learn how to make those kinds of flower arrangements that often get featured on TV or magazines?
There are no hard and fast rules, but there are steps that you can take in order to create your own beautiful flower arrangements that you can be proud of.
Use Your Instincts; Rules? Forget the rules! There is an artist in every one of us. Some are just dormant and sleeping, waiting for you to come to wake it up. What better time than now? And the great thing about flower arrangements is that it takes so little from you to make them look beautiful. After all, flowers are things of beauty on their own.
Instead, trust your instincts. Let your eyes be your guide. Just pay attention and you will instantly know which flower arrangements are more pleasing to the eyes.
Cluster Small Flowers in Groups; It’s far from the rule of thumb, but you can never go wrong if you do this. Have you noticed how small flowers tend to disappear when placed in large flower arrangements? With all these large and more assertive blooms around them, the small flowers get overwhelmed. Moreover, they are also harder to grab and reposition.
By grouping smaller flowers together, it would be easier for you to handle them and give your flower arrangements a more distinctive impression. You can do this by putting them close to each other or bundling them together with the use of a ribbon, rubber bands, floral wire, or floral tape.
On Single Blooms; Another common arrangement that people often resort to is a lone rose in a bud vase. While single bloom types of flower arrangements are always elegant, experiment with this method and add your own style. You can, for instance, make several single bloom flower arrangements positioned in several parts of the house – from small blooms inside wine glasses or teacups to large blooms in bowls. That way, the lone rose in a bud vase can look even more distinctive in a room full of different flower arrangements.
Use the Right Container; If you must follow one rule, this is it: use containers that match the type of flower arrangements. The good news is that most flower arrangements are unique. So match them up with unique containers as well.
You do not have to arrange your flowers in a typical vase. If you feel that your blooms look prettier in a different container, then do so. You can even use bottles, smaller vases, teacups, wine glasses – the works. And the overall effect would be a refreshing look to your flower arrangements.
