Principles of Flower Arrangements

Flower arrangements 300x218 Principles of Flower Arrangementsflower arrangement01 284x300 Principles of Flower ArrangementsThe flower arrangement is an art type that is being practiced through out the whole world and is loved by almost every person on the earth because nothing means more than having flowers around you. There are different styles and methodologies or philosophies adopted by florists in different parts of world that result in very different types of floral arrangements presented to sooth the aesthetic sense of all flower lovers. Flowers are the mean to deliver messages for so many people every day in this universe. So beautiful arrangements mean a lot for them especially when it’s about delivering multiple messages that is not possible by any other way than a beautiful amalgamation of different flowers.

There are certain principles that florists consider and undertake when preparing a flower arrangement. These principles are numerous; yet at least six are considered at every cost.

•    The first principle or thing considered by the florist is making an imaginary flower arrangement according to occasion, place and things available; this is called the design. This is the first step when florist prepares a floral arrangement in his mind as to how he would be carrying out with all the material available according to all conditions to be considered.

•    Next principle for any floral arrangement is that it should be balanced. The florist need to consider completely that all the accessories are used in a balance as this is going to make a flower arrangement look stable and white flower arrangements 248x300 Principles of Flower Arrangementsbeautiful. In balance of flower arrangements two things are considered that are colors and form of floral arrangement. The two types are symmetrical and asymmetrical balances. Symmetrical is when there is balance of accessories used on both sides while asymmetrical is one when there is no balance but it seems to be balanced due to use of flowers in a way that makes the arrangement appear balanced. This is done as dark colors appear to provide with more weighting.

•     The third principle is about scale that is the material to be used should be in collaboration with the container in which the flowers are to be arranged. Over crowded with lots of material or lack of flowers and material both won’t look fine. The other thing to consider in Scale is that the materials used should also be according to the size of container something too big in a small container or small thing in large container would make arrangement appear bad.

•    The next to come up is Rhythm. Now Rhythm is something that makes the viewer to catch the main line instantly with the first glance on the arrangement so the whole composition is understood well.

•    Focal point is the next point of consideration in creating floral arrangements. This is the centre of the flower arrangement from where it feels like that all flowers are blooming out. Large and dark flowers are used in this part.

•    Harmony and Unity is the last principle that emphasizes over appropriate use of flowers in proper size and colors in a way that flowers with each other and with container create a beautiful and catchy contrast.

By considering the above mentioned principles florists are able to create those arrangements that make us fall in love with them immediately.

However, some flower bouquets seem to wilt overnight. But there are ways you can make your flowers last longer and enhance the length of their beauty and aroma.
Instructions to Follow:

1.    When choosing flowers, select flowers that are not fully bloomed yet. You can watch flowers open later that are still in bud. Yellow, spotted or drooping leaves are signs of age.

2.    It is important to place fresh flowers in a clean vase. Dirt and dust often causes bacterial growth. To avoid it you can use a flower preservative that is easily available in garden centers or supermarkets. At home you can use use a capful of household bleach in the water as an alternative. After using a preservative you are required to change the water only about twice a week otherwise replace the water in the vase at least every three to four days as Stale water can cause flowers to wilt and die.

4.    It is better to remove the leaves that are below the waterline. If the leaves are submerged in the water they will promote bacterial microbial growth that may limit water uptake and ultimately cause the flowers to die.

5.    If you have bought the flowers there must be some food with it provided by the florist. You need to feed them every three days. It would benefit them tremendously if you follow the mixing directions on the flower food packet properly.

6.    To add some more days to the flowers’ life you can simply keep the flowers for four to five hours in water, preferably overnight before arranging. This is called conditioning. It allows the stems to fill up with water and the flowers to look fresh.

7.    The best time to pick flowers is early morning or late evening. Sugar reserves in the stems are at their highest in these moments. Never pick flowers in the noon time when the heat of the sun lowers the water content in the stems and lessens the duration of their being fresh. If you are picking flowers on a rainy day when they are wet shake them gently before putting in a vase in order to remove the excess water. Too much water can damage flowers – specially the delicately petalled ones.

8.    If somehow you are unable to place flowers in water, it is wise to place them in a strong plastic bag with some water in the base. Secure the bag with a rubber band. You can also wrap flowers in a damp newspaper.

Tips & Warnings:
●    A 45degree angle cut helps the stem of the flower to better access the water.
●    Don’t place the vase near a fruit bowl, the natural ripening gas that fruits emit will rot the flowers very quickly.
●    Always keep the flowers in a cool room. Avoid them from heat of direct sun. It is also a mistake to keep fresh flowers near a heating source as this cause the water in the vase to evaporate quickly.

Making flowers last longer adds to your enjoyment of them, and prevents them from wilting and a fast decay.
