1. ARRANGING FLOWERS
Arranging flowers the right way is an absolutely essential part of taking care of flowers in general and this article will give you thorough guidelines connected to properly arranging flowers.
2. THE RIGHT FOAM TO USE
There are two types of floral foam-the green water-retaining one which is perfect for fresh flowers and the brown stiffer foam which works for artificial and dried plants.
3. SPACIOUS ENVIRONMENT
After you have acquired your flowers you need to choose a proper place for them to be arranged. Then you have to carefully decide what sort of a container you want every separate flower to be in. It is simple-the bigger the flower, the bigger the vase. When it comes down to beautifully located flowers you have to find the proper balance between the place where you put your flowers and the vase itself in order for it to look well.
4. DINING TABLE FLOWER DECORATION
When you are putting flowers on your dining table you shouldn‘t put too many of them and you should put tall ones because it would look ridiculuous. After all, you want to look properly at the other people dining and too big flowers in the middle of the dining table will prevent you from that. When it comes to a buffet table though, the situation is a little more different. There, since a lot of people will be present you have to put all the flowers in tall vases or piedestals to make the overall picture neater and more spectacular for the masses.
5. VARIETY OF FLOWERS
Do not allow for all of your flowers to be equally young especially if it comes down to flowers from one and the same time. Variety of all kinds is always better with flowers except in the cases of bouquettes maybe. If you have in your flower arrangement both big and small flowers the arrangement will look more natural, beautiful and masterfully composed.
6. SHAPES OF FLOWERS AND FOLIAGE
When it comes down to variety in flowers, one can be incredibly creative so take the time to play around with flowers that are different not only in their age but also in their form, size, color and even smell provided you are hard working enough. Every florist can come up with wondrous foliage designs so if you want to arrange your flowers in a truly marvelous way make sure you contact a professional when you are dealing with the wrapping and the foliage of flowers. There are three basic forms with flowers. Those are line material, rounded material and filler material so mix those in any way you can in order to make the most astonishing of flower compositions.
7. GOLDEN RULE OF ARRANGEMENT
The most important rule of arranging flowers is that you should never allow your flowers to be facing the same direction, especially if you are in possession of beautiful and unique flowers. This would totally destroy any feeling of originality or freshness in your arrangement so do not allow it.
8. SPECIAL CARE OF LILIES
When it comes down to the beautiful flower Lilie you have to always throw out its stamens because:
-otherwise the flower will be stained
-the flower may stain pretty much anything that touches it
-the flower will live longer if the stamens is taken out
-take out the stamens with your fingers and never with a knife or scissor because this is very unprofessional and looks bad.
9. COLOR RULE
And finally, although making a one-color arrangement is not bad, you will certainly attract more satisfied gazes if you have a multi-color arrangement.
