The Basics of Flower Arrangements

As spring comes into full bloom, bright-colored flowers will definitely be in high demand. However, have you ever given thought to creating your own flower arrangements? It does not have to take a professional florist to make beautiful floral creations — you can do them right from the comforts of your home. Here are some key tips to putting together festive spring flower arrangements:

  • Choose a Color Scheme:

    To start off your flower-arranging skills, choose a color scheme. This means that you do not necessarily have to choose flowers of the exact same color, but choose colors that are along the same shades. For instance, if you chose a blue color scheme, you might choose colors such as indigo, navy blue, sky blue, turquoise, and perhaps even green. A red color scheme might yield colors such as red, orange, pink, burgundy, and more.

  • Have Creative Flower Choices:

    A floral arrangement does not need to remain exclusive to one or two types of flowers. Be on the lookout for exotic flowers that can come in a variety of different colors. You can spice up your flower arrangement by including flowers that are not in your everyday garden, and perhaps even use them as a teaching opportunity for your children.

  • Incorporate Floral Accessories:

    Ribbons and other types of accessories can beautify your flower arrangement. You might add things such as ribbons to tie your flower arrangement together, or you could even sprinkle your flowers with some glitter or other confetti pieces to make things creative.

  • Find a Great Vase:

    Arguably one of the most important aspects to flower arrangements is the type of container you place your arrangement in. Find beautiful, bargain vases at different stores in your neighborhood, or even find some heirloom vases in your home. If you want a more rustic feel, you could use household items to hold your flowers.

Use these tips to create your next flower arrangement. Whatever flowers, colors, or accessories you choose, make it your own and use your creativity.
