Flower & business design insights, inspiration, and advise for the modern day florist (or wannabe florist).
Yes, fall (autumn) is in the air and I am loving it. Do you ever design centerpieces and bouquets this time of year and think...."ugh this looks cheap"? Most of us love mums and soldiago this time of year, but honestly week after week it gets a little old. On today's blog I share some of my most recent work and some my favorite colors, flowers, and design technique to give you a luxurious rustic feel.
When shopping for the perfect blooms reach for deep rich tones to compliment the season. Give your arrangement an instant upgrade with lush foliage and densely packed fillers.
PLAY UP TEXTURES
Design with flowers you may not always reach for. Add some elegance and style with cala lilies, hydrangeas, and ornamental cabbage. With nicer blooms you can do allot more with less.
When arranging your bouquets or centerpieces, remember to keep your designs compact. Loose, light and airy gives a fresh just picked from the garden feel. You want a more tight and bundled together style of design.
