Decorating a home with flowers is one of the most effective and timeless ways to bring beauty and breathe life into living spaces. Whichever room they are in, flowers help enhance the look of a home and add a splash of color. Their inviting fragrance also makes for a healthy home.
Flower Arrangement Tips You Need to Know
If you have a local trusted florist or have easy access to fresh blooms every day, here are some helpful tips you can use to brighten up any living space with floral arrangements.
- Consider making a large-scale arrangement. If you have big, billowing flowers or even beautiful palm leaves around your garden, why don’t you try bringing their beauty inside home? Place an armful of hydrangeas or palm leaves into a nicely shaped vase to create a cheerful yet elegant arrangement. If you have many blooms, to ensure that the vase won’t topple over, tie the flower stems to a two-tier wire flower frog. Then, secure the frog to the bottom of the base with floral adhesive.
- Use different elements to create a jewel-like bouquet. Combine different floral elements to create an arrangement with various colors, patterns, and textures. For example, you can assemble begonia’s snipped from outdoor plants and then place them in a vase with fresh cut eucalyptus. The shades of red and green will definitely liven up any part of the home.
- Let long stems arch out. Some people like their floral arrangements to look balanced or even. If you want to try something different, you should let long-stemmed flowers arch out. This arrangement works best if you have a trumpet vase. Flower stems naturally follow the shape of this vase, giving you an ethereal and delicate arrangement. You can use flowers with graceful stems, then add shorter cuttings of maidenhair fern just beneath the larger blooms.
- Play with texture. Add airy sprigs to a dense mound of flowers to create more texture in your arrangement. For example, place late-summer dahlias in a shallow wide rimmed vase. Then add a contrasting element like wispy asparagus fronds. This makes the hot colors pop out more and the arrangement’s spiky forms more eye-catching.
- Experiment with different flowers in shades of the same hue. Try using different flowers of the same color, but with different shades. For instance, hydrangeas and clematis in purple tones would look absolutely gorgeous with their unified yet diverse look.
Having fresh flowers will make a happy home for all.
