Flower arrangements are delicate things. Every colour and flower have to be exact. If you mix the wrong colours it looks tacky; in the same way, if you mix the wrong flower types it looks strange. There are many things to look out for when choosing flowers for your arrangement. We at Valen Fleur want to give you some advice about how you can determine what flowers to use with just one question. For what occasion is your flower arrangement for? Read on to learn what type of flowers to use in the following situations.
When someone graduates from college or succeeds in some area of their life, it is always nice to gift them some flowers. A congratulatory arrangement tends to be comprised of vibrant colours. You can use two or three brilliant colours; or if you feel the person would love a more colourful arrangement, you can add even more. Typically, the flowers for this kind of arrangement can be chosen based on the person that you plan to give them to. If the person you wish to congratulate loves the colour red, then you can arrange the flowers with red being the star flower colour. This doesn’t mean you should use only red, but the red flowers should be the ones that stick out the most. Another option is to choose colours that have to do with the success itself. For example, if your daughter has graduated from high school, then arrange the flowers with the colours of her uniform; or even the colours of the school logo. There are many different ways that you can arrange this one. In the end, it is up to you to determine which suits the person best.
No gift is ever enough to fully consolidate someone who has lost a loved one. Flowers are often a good choice as they have deep meaning depending on which ones you use. Flowers arranged to provide sympathy should be simple in colour. We recommend an arrangement that is almost all white flowers; if you feel the need to add some more colours then try using a white flower with a black centre or show some of the branches and leaves. Do your best not to overcomplicate your arrangement. White roses tend to be the best choice for the prominent flower in a consolatory arrangement. If you are aware of the deceased’s favourite flower you can use this in order to give your arrangement more meaning. Remember, your arrangement is supposed to remind people of the joys given to and from the life that came before this moment. An arrangement of this sort should provide some comfort to those left behind.
Flower Arrangements for an Event
If you want to arrange flowers for a particular event you should choose flowers based on the theme of your event. Having a theme doesn’t mean you all need to dress up. It simply means the colour theme of your event. For example, if you are planning a wedding with a colour theme of blue and white, you can arrange flowers that are prominently blue and white. This way the flowers you choose will meld with all the other decorations being set up for your event.
A Flower Arrangement for Yourself
We’ve spent most of our time talking about how to arrange flowers to give to someone else. How would you like to design a flower arrangement just for you? This is probably one of the easiest arrangements to choose because nobody knows what you want better than you do. You can pick your own favourite colours and your own favourite flowers. The only thing you need to keep track of is which flowers go well together and which don’t. In the end, whatever arrangement looks perfect to you is perfect for you.
