Everybody likes flowers, they have a unique ability to liven up any room. Most of us will just bunch a number of different types of flowers together and then leave it at that, but much more impressive results can be achieved if you know how to arrange flowers effectively. Flower arranging isn’t difficult; believe it or not just following the tips below can make the majority of people five times better at it.
What Type of Arrangement Is It?
Decide which sort of arrangement you would like. It might be a conventional table arrangement in a vase or a bouquet as a gift or a really creative conversational piece. Don’t be afraid of being creative, there are countless ways of presenting different types of arrangements
Form of Arrangement
There are a number of different shapes that are typically used when arranging flowers, these include:
Horizontal arrangement: great for a large table adornments the horizontal arrangement is broad and low. A traditional horizontal arrangement is symmetrical in form and the placement of flowers. The width should be two times the height. The container should be shallow and wide, the focal flower(s) in the centre and line flowers inserted almost horizontally.
Crescent arrangement: somewhat challenging to get right for a beginner though great for a smaller sized table decoration. Being asymmetrical does cause problems as it is harder to find a balance when viewed from all angles. The arrangement also needs to be physically stable. It is likely that you are going to also need some leaves or branches to build the crescent. The container or vase also will need to be broad as well as fairly low to keep the arrangement steady.
Oval arrangement: often seen at funerals but also idea for your home.. Use a vase which is wide yet short. The oval arrangement is not supposed to be viewed from all sides. This Gorgeous oval arrangement makes for a perfect head table piece.
Minimal arrangement: as the name suggests this particular arrangement uses very few blooms. Minimal flower arrangements are able to look elegant and understated.
Triangular arrangement: perhaps the most common kind of flower arrangement. The line flowers are first of all inserted to form a triangular shape, the triangle needs to be taller than it is wide.
The Lazy “S”: very challenging “S” shape that generally requires some proficiency to get right. Based on the shape of the “S” the quantity of blooms need to be kept to a minimum. Commonly branches or greenery are used to form the S shape to which line flowers are added. The focal and filler flowers fill up the middle of the “S”.
Vertical arrangement: As the name suggests these are tall, slim arrangements. These are good for presenting long, focal blooms. Make use of a tall container to place your flowers in, it is only required to be wide enough to add only a few surrounding flowers.
Choose Your Colors
Would you like a warm attention grabbing orange/red arrangement or a cool lilac/blue one? Colors are perhaps the most crucial factor when selecting your flowers. Knowing color theory can be extremely helpful here – there are numerous guides on the web. A few of the options are complimentary colours – colours from the opposite sides of the colour wheel like green and red or blue and orange, or ‘analogous colors’ similar colours that are next to each other on the colour wheel like yellow and orange or red and purple.
You might prefer to employ a less academic approach and just choose the colours that you simply find appealing. Remember colours can often communicate many different feelings like love, sympathy, friendship, happiness etc.
Choosing The Flowers
Nearly all flowers can be placed in one of the these following groups:
Line flowers – Line flowers provide your bouquet with height, width and shape. As the name suggests they are tall and slim typically with buds along the stem. Examples of line flowers include delphinium, tuberose, stock, gladiolus and snapdragons. Branches and taller greenery are often used as an alternative to line flowers
Mass flowers – these are the focal point of colour and interest in the arrangement, commonly round face big flowers on a single stem. Good examples of focal flowers include : carnation, freesia, rose, gerbera, sunflower, lily, tulip, chrysanthemum, iris, zinnia, alstroemeria and protea.
Filler flowers – small flowers used to fill the gaps in the arrangement. Good examples of filler flowers include : ferns, aster, baby’s breath, feverfew, Queen Anne’s lace, heather, eucalyptus. Filler flowers can be excellent candidates for dried flower arrangements.
There are a few other things you need to bear in mind when choosing the flowers:
Choose seasonal flowers – they will be both cheaper (owing to the fact that florists will be able to acquire them at a much lower price) and more in keeping with the time of year. If ordering you flowers online, order well in advance.
The Flower Arrangement
You should place the flowers into the vase in this specific sequence : line flowers then focal flowers then filler flowers. While you place the flowers seek to allocate each and every flower its own space in the arrangement whilst maintaining a balance of colour throughout.
Floral foam is really a must for a good flower arrangement, drench the floral foam in water as well as plant food and cut it 1 inch above the rim of the vase/container.This will make it easy for flowers to be positioned naturally.. Don’t rush it place one flower at a time A sharp edge knife is required to create a cut that will let water to enter the flower stems. Whenever arranging, position the largest and heaviest blooms along the bottom. Shape or slant the stems with a sharp knife and remove any leaves or flowers below the water line. For most arrangements all flowers should face outwards.
