Particular Varieties Of Flower Arrangement


Visitors: 604

Whenever you want to say it with flowers, the implications of the particular floral arrangement should be highly considered. Flowers express every emotion - be it love, hate, sympathy or congratulations. Fresh flower arrangement is the purest form of all expressions. Fresh flower arrangements or floral designs usually follow the following guidelines:

The largest and darkest flowers are placed close to the base of the design while the smallest and the lightest are placed at the outer edges of the arrangement.

The floral arrangement should be divided into line materials (twigs, tiny flowers), dominant materials (big flowers), secondary materials (other flowers), and filler materials (foliage) and placed harmoniously and proportionately.

The container must have elegance, class and style that fit in with the overall decor.

The basic flower arrangement methods can be roughly classified according to the shape of the floral design as-

  • Mound Flower Arrangement

  • Triangular Flower Arrangement

    Asymmetrical Flower Arrangement

  • Crescent Flower Arrangement

  • Hogarth Curve Flower Arrangement

    Some individual floral arrangements:

    Roses are originally cultivated in various shades of pink - from the palest pink to the deepest crimson. The implication of the pink rose floral arrangement incorporate grace and elegance, as well as cuteness and poetic romance. Based on the occasion they also entail gratitude, appreciation and even sympathy. In a perfect arrangement the roses are perfectly pointed or gracefully curved.

    The peony means ‘most beautiful', and is idolized by the Chinese and the Japanese. It is native to Europe, Asia and North America with a variety of shades - from white to peach to dark maroon. Being seasonal, it is available between May and July. A peony floral arrangement symbolizes luxury and indulgence. These fragrant, gigantic flowers work well alone in a bouquet or a mixed arrangement. Their thin stems require wiring and are popular in the wedding flower arrangement.

    Gerbera Daisy flower happens to be the most popular cut flowers. The gerbera daisy flower arrangement is widely used in bouquets and dry flower crafts. The flowers available in different hues are hardy enough to with stand the rigors of transportation, as they are found only in the humid tropical climates. Chemical preservative solution is recommended for this floral arrangement.

    Miniature flower arrangement - Here the shape of the arrangement is a circle, triangle, an L- shape or a S-curve. The taller flowers are placed at the focal point. The ends are dipped in glue for better posture. The filler leaves are then inserted.

    Spring flower arrangement comprises of primarily the Classic Dutch Tulip. Other popular flowers include daffodil, iris, cyclamen and crocus.

    Tropical flowers can be preserved up to three weeks. They require fresh water and need to be kept away from heat sources. For a Tropical Flower arrangement, the stems of the flowers are first arranged, and then evenly trimmed at the bottom. Dendrobium and Anthurium are the most popular varieties.

    The Exotic flower arrangements lend a perfect touch of beauty to the modern day apartments. With proper attention and care this floral arrangement can stay fresh for three weeks. The most popular of the arrangements are:

    • Anthurium and Stargazer Lilies arrangement - It is a magnificent assortment of colors.
    • Protea and Ginger arrangement - it is a combination of Queen Protea flowers and pink Ginger flowers which provide a calming sensation.

    The fruit flower arrangement came across as a fun concept quite long ago. It takes shape when fruits are made the focal point of the floral design. The assembling is done harmoniously keeping the color, form and shape of the design in mind. They generally form the center-table pieces.
