How to make a beautiful floral arrangement, step by step.
A colorful bouquet of flowers has always been a top gifting choice to celebrate a special occasion. It’s truly a wonderful gift that will brighten up anyone’s day, without fail. A colorful bouquet brings us instant happiness and joy. Spring is approaching, and it’s time to put those blooms together into a nice bundle. Here’s how to make a beautiful floral arrangement, step by step.
What’s Your Plan?
It’s good to have a plan when making a floral bouquet. What color theme do you want? What kind of textures do you want in your bundle of flowers? Is this going to be your friend’s baby shower gift, or is it for your home decoration? What kind of flowers are you using? It’s good to have your basic ideas planned out, so you don’t end up with flowers that don’t get along.
Best Flowers for Your Spring Bouquet
There are more than many Spring flowers to decorate your special bouquet. For a clean and simple mood, you can use anemone, freesia, ranunculus, and peony. These flowers symbolize purity, love, and protection.
Pastel-tone pink flowers represent an elegant, soft, and sweet vibe, such as a wallflower, rose, carnation, and tulip. For a blooming, energetic mood, use calla lily, chamomile, billy button, and poppy, which are more vividly orange and yellow. Purple spring flowers are sweet pea, waxflower, and iris.
Make sure to mix different colors of flowers to create an abundant, bountiful bouquet.
Start with Branches
Start by arranging branches and greenery to create the shape of your bouquet. Once you’ve placed these items, add the colorful flowers in between. It’s better to have less space between flowers and branches when starting out.
Attention to Composition
Jill Rizzo of South San Francisco-based Studio Choo said, “composition and shape play a huge part in how you interact with an arrangement.” Try to create multiple layers and points of interest by using long and short flowers and branches. Your eyes will continue to find new elements and give more movements to flowers. The bouquet doesn’t always have to be a round shape; instead, make some fun points by sticking the branches out a little longer than others.
Add Different Textures
Another easy way to give liveliness and loveliness to the bouquet is by adding different grasses and flowers for different textures. Some uniquely-textured flowers and greeneries are monstera leaves, fiddlehead ferns, hanging amaranthus, and allium blooms.
The most commonly used unique grasses are explosion grass, blacktip wheat, millet, rye brome, silvertip grass, and feather top grass, which are easy to combine with all kinds of flowers.
Give Flowers Room to Grow
The beauty of the bouquet is that the flowers and grasses are real and alive. Give them a little room to grow and change. Flowers like sunflowers and daylilies bloom in the morning and wither at night. Tulips and lilac tend to open up more over time. Give them room to have plenty of air and space to grow.
