Flower Arrangements for the Home
There’s something about flowers that cheers people up, so take some advantages of it by following these helpful tips of flower arrangements for the home. A few tips and suggestions to let your blooms last longer and their fragrance will spread your home. Flowers in three sizes make beautiful and symmetrical arrangements. Fill bare areas with small flowers. Try to get some vases Experiment with clay pots, china porcelain, crystal, steel, or glass bowls, cups, champagne glasses, teapots, water pitchers and make sure that the container is clean and polished to complement the beauty.
Match the room’s decor with complementary or contrasting colours. Use flowers in colours such as blues and greens to introduce a soothing effect in a room. For a warmer look, oranges and reds will do the trick. For a subtle arrangement, yellows and peaches are the best choice of colours. You may want to choose just one type of flower for your bouquet (a monobotanic) or one colour with varying shades (a monochromatic). The rose is elegant and says love. The carnation is sturdy and says you can count on me. The orchid is exotic and dares you to dream.
Red is a very hot, passionate, and strong colour. Red can make you think of Christmas or valentines. Yellow is a happy colour and evokes a feeling of anticipation. Blue is a cool colour and creates a softer feeling. Orange is a dramatic colour, not as hot as red but it still has impact. If you want an arrangement to have the autumn feel, combine browns gold or a bit of yellow and red-orange together. Purple is a vibrant colour but unlike red and orange it has a calming effect. Green is a universal colour that goes with any colour of arrangement. In nature all flowers spring up from greens so it is very natural to use them in all arrangements. You can take any of these colour combinations and put them together in their lighter or darker shades depending on what mood you are trying to create.
