Vibrant blooms always contribute to a refreshing atmosphere. If you are someone who enjoys such an atmosphere, then beautiful flower arrangements can help to bring a touch of freshness and elegance to your home or event.
Whether you are getting into floral arrangements or have been doing it for a long time, this article aims to provide you with fresh inspiration for your next flower arrangement as well as tips to get you started.
Embrace the summer palette
When it comes to cheerful and bright tones, nothing beats a summer floral arrangement. Colours, such as lovely pink, sky blue, coral orange, and sunflower yellow, help bring that vibrancy into the space. One tip to ensure that the final floral arrangement is not too overwhelming would be to mix cool and warm colours.
Selecting the right flowers
Singapore experiences an all-year-round summer season, and that means an abundance of blooming options. Consider incorporating everyday flowers, such as hydrangeas, dahlias, lilies, roses, zinnias, daisies, and sunflowers. Not only are they widely available in most floral shops, but they also come in an assortment of textures, sizes, and colours, enabling limitless experimentations of various combinations.
Add foliage and greenery
Incorporating different blooms in your flower arrangement is recommended. However, it is not the final product. Do not overlook various foliage and greeneries, as they help to add texture and depth to your arrangement. Go for leaves, such as ivy, ferns, and eucalyptus, to achieve a garden-fresh and natural look.
Mix and match
There is no one-size-fits-all solution when it comes to floral combinations. Always experiment with what you have to create a one-of-a-kind arrangement. You can incorporate flowers with complementary hues or pair very contrasting colours together. You can also play around with texture and height by combining fuller blooms with slender, tall stems to add visual interest and dimension to your final product.
Incorporate seasonal elements
Consider incorporating various seasonal elements to boost your summer floral arrangements. For example, adding slices of citrus fruits, such as lime, orange, and lemon, to the vases helps to add an aromatic and refreshing touch.
If you are looking to bring a more coastal vibe to your home or event, then beach-inspired trinkets, such as pebbles and seashells, will do the job. If you like a rustic vibe, you might even want to use dried or preserved flowers over fresh flowers.
Experiment with different containers
You can create the most aesthetically pleasing floral display, but if the container you choose to hold the arrangement does not match, all your effort comes to nought. Your choice of container will impact the floral arrangement’s overall aesthetic significantly.
There are many readily available options, such as repurposed items like wine bottles and teapots, wooden boxes, vintage pitchers, and mason jars. Take into consideration the look you are going for and the surrounding environment, then experiment with the containers.
Consider floral themes
If you are creating flower arrangements for an event or a gathering, then consider matching your floral arrangements with the theme. For a tropical theme, use exotic blooms, such as birds of paradise, hydrangeas, and orchids. For a rustic theme, consider combining various herbs and wildflowers. Floral themes will help to tie the event together, creating a visually stunning vibe.
Flower arrangements are a work of art and provide the opportunity to express your creativity and bring biophilic elements into the space. By following the above tips and inspirations, you are set to go on achieving stunning arrangements that will elevate your home or event to the next level.
