Even though wedding cakes were never a part of a traditional Indian wedding, but in this fast changing society it is becoming fairly prevalent owing to the fact that western customs quite frequently get infused into the Indian wedding celebrations.

florist-designer010The first step of flower designing

The first step that need to be taken in flower designing technique depends upon the arrangement you are making for, like if you are to make a bouquet you have to start with foam but if arrangement is for a vase then pick up the container. Thee flower holders in a bouquet are very important. The foam is wet in water, and then the stems of the flowers are buried in them, so that a continuous source of water is provided to the flowers to remain alive and fresh. If not this then containers must be your choice. In bouquet the container could be anything that you wish your bouquet to be looking like. In a bouquet the container could be a basket with foam at its base, while in a vase the container could be just anything that is capable of holding water. Choose the container on the basis of arrangement you want to give to the flowers. If you want the flowers to be getting a small cozy bush type look, its suggested to use small round pots, but if you have long stems and you want to have a taller arrangement with sparse flowers, look for thin neck tall vases.

Now when your vessel is decided, get in action and clean it up very carefully with on leave or petal left inside. Next fill the vase with fresh water at room temperature and add some flower food to it. If your vase is tall, try to tie the flowers together just above the height of the vase. Cut the stems in proper length and angle so that they could live longer in the vase.

Stuffing the flowers in vase

If you have just randomly stuffed your vase with flowers, there are chances that it may look like wild bush of grasses and berries. What you should be doing is that make the arrangement according to the color. The flowers on the basis of color contrast are arranged best. The bigger and dominant flowers are suggested to be kept first, so that they appear catchy. Also they should be placed at different angles so that full vase or bouquet appear even. Use the foliage to cover up the gaps, or you can be using small pretty flowers for the job.

The last step of flower designing is to pick out the pollen stamens from the bases. By doing this we can assure that the pollens won’t be discoloring the petals, neither there are any stains going to be coming up. The flower’s life is also extended by removing pollens, as the flower will be prevented from becoming pollinated.

By following these simple flower designing techniques, you can add to the beauty of your place through magnificent flowers.

Watering a flower properly is one of the biggest necessity. Flowers have to be watered on a regular basis in order for them to grow and survive. Inconstant watering may lead to the death of a flower. Since flowers of different species differ in the amount of water they require one must get wise about their own flowers. Flowers come from different locales and are accustomed to growing up in different climactic conditions. It is important to get the proportion right. An excess of water might lead to the flower beginning to rot while under watering a flower might lead to their wilting. Proper knowledge regarding a flower’s origins and its requirements is thus necessary. Besides water there are other factors that might differ, such as the amount of sunlight one needs to expose them to or what temperature they prefer.

Light and Positioning

Depending upon the amount of sunlight that is necessary for a plant growing up, one needs to act accordingly. The positioning of a flower in the garden has a huge impact on the flower’s health. The positioning of the flower determines on how much sunlight the flower or the plant is being exposed to. The different flowers should be placed in a garden scientifically, taking into account the amount of sunlight they require. Some research about such flowers is therefore necessary before setting about the task. Read More →

bridal bouquet Did you know that flowers have been used in wedding ceremonies since the dawn of time as an expression of love and only the best wishes to both the newly-weds and the guests of the wedding.

The ancient Greeks were the first ones, who have actually used wedding flowers in their ceremonies. They used them for making a decoration for the bride’s head such as a crown or a diadem and were considered a gift of nature. Usually, it was the bridesmaids who would make the floral decoration of the entire wedding, including garlands, the bridal bouquet and the boutonnière for the groom.

Nowadays, the wedding business is so well-developed that there is a great variety of flowers on the market – both fresh and silk ones. Today, one of the most current global fashion trends when it comes to bridal bouquets is using not only fresh, but also artificial and silk flowers, as well as some flowers made of other fabrics or even paper.

flower arranging tipsArranging some flowers in a vase is one of the most pleasant domestic chores, because it is pretty soothing, and the end result is a true delight to the eye and senses, not to mention the fact that it freshens the room. At first glance flower arrangement may seem easy, but the truth is that it also has its own rules.

Choice of flowers

Before you embark on the arrangement of flower compositions, you should choose the right flowers first. The decision you take depends on several factors:

  • The interior of your home

Take into account what the prevailing colours and patterns in your home are, and where exactly you plan to put the flowers. For example, a smaller vase won’t look very well on a big table, but will look amazing on a neat coffee table.

There are flower compositions based only on the variations of one colour only. On the other hand, you can experiment by selecting some colours according to their position on the colour wheel, and of course, don’t neglect your personal preferences. Read More →
