We all have our own favourite colours and flowers but this does not mean that we have to order the same flower arrangements every time. In fact, it’s a great idea to explore different flowers and arrangement styles if you want to ensure that your floral décor at home or work is refreshing every time. The good news is that there are plenty of florists out there with amazing and innovative designs. You just need to know what to look for.
Firstly, don’t only look for colours that you like or those that will match your décor. In fact, when your flowers offer a colour contrast, this can be even more appealing than trying to match colours. A well-known contrasting colour combination is yellow and blue or purple. So, if you have a blue or purple room, you will love the way bright yellow flowers “pop” and bring new life to this area.
Another great tip to remember is to look for variety when it comes to texture too. Lilies offer a smoother look whereas flowers with a more ruffled appearance (like carnations and chrysanthemums) can totally transform the bouquet. Try to combine these two contrasting elements rather than simply choosing one or the other.
What about potted plants? Florists stock a variety of beautiful potted plants from which to choose. Your florist might even have one or more succulents as part of their product range. These plants are becoming increasingly popular because of their unusual beauty and the fact that they require minimal care. You don’t even need to water them daily!
Finally, consider your container as well any other accessories you wish to add. Objects like flower picks and feathers will add colour, texture, and they can emphasize a particular theme. For example, if you want to send flowers to somebody for their birthday, you can have the florist add a birthday flower pick or even one with a happy butterfly to express your joy.
With so many great options out there, there’s no excuse to stay in that rut! If you are ever unsure about the best flowers for you, consider seasonal flowers. Not only are they reasonably priced but you are bound to find something different to enjoy every time!
