Flower arrangements are great for special occasions or just brightening up your home. However, buying them from a florist can be expensive. Here are a few tips to help you make a wonderful flower arrangement that looks like it’s done by a pro.
Start with vases. You can use crystal glasses, and it’s easy to find them at flea markets and thrift stores. You can also use old candle glasses. Simply put them in the freezer when they’re used up and clean them out for your floral arrangement.
When it comes to choosing your flowers, it’s up to personal preference, but it can help to simplify things. Choose two main colors you want to use, like white and green, for example. This can give a nice clean and professional look without trying to coordinate more options.
As you work, make sure to balance the colors. Take a step back as you progress to make sure everything looks balanced. This doesn’t necessarily mean you use a 50/50 color split, just whatever looks like it works best.
Finally, stand up your bouquet next to your chosen vase to see where to cut the stems. Then, chop, chop, and in they go! You have a wonderful bouquet of flowers for birthdays, weddings, anniversaries, or just your own enjoyment.
