How To Arrange Your Own Flowers
Tuesday, March 29
Do you feel frustrated because the flowers from your yard don't look as good when you arrange them as they do at the florist's? A nice technique is to cut flowers in two sizes and combine with a green vine or something else that can trail over the edge of the vase. That way, you've got three sizes going at once. This is an attractive, one size fits most way to arrange flowers.
To arrange them in a English garden style, make sure some flowers face each direction, as with that style, being viewed from all angles is important. For a contemporary look, make the flowers asymmetrical or mismatched on purpose. Lilacs, which symbolize those first feelings of love in the Victorian language of flowers, are a nice addition to a flower vase when you're inviting that special someone over.
