Making floral arrangements yourself: The basic rules
Let's start with some basic rules that you must follow when making floral arrangements yourself. No matter which flowers you choose, they should be an odd number. You should also keep the flowers in lukewarm water for at least one hour. It is best to leave the flowers there for half a day.
Then you have to choose a suitable vase that really brings out your floral arrangement. If the stems are well arranged under the water, then the vessel may be transparent. If only the flowers should be on display, choose a vase made of opaque material. This would also have to match the size and width of the floral arrangement.
Small floral arrangements with strong contrasts are quite effective
The different techniques
If you look at the large variety of floral arrangements, you will discover some techniques that repeat themselves over and over again. Choose those that best suit your taste, interior design and decorating style. A very common strategy is to combine monochrome flowers. You can also match those in different shades of the same color.
Another, very popular option is of course the contrast. The main part of the flower arrangement consists of green stems and plants. In between, one puts flowers with glaring flowers, which set strong colored accents. You can make such floral arrangements yourself, if you want to achieve a festive mood.
Finally, you can also add various other decorations - garlands, ribbons, gifts of nature ...
