Floral tips on seasonal designs

in Uncategorized by

The holiday season is upon us once again. Wow, how quickly this year has come and gone. It’s time for parties, festive luncheons, get togethers with friends, family and co-workers which means enhancing these gatherings with beautiful, seasonal flowers. Instead of bringing the same old run of the mill hostess gift of a bottle of wine, why not try your hand at a thoughtful, well put together, creative centerpiece that you have handmade with love. Tis the season for rich palettes of burgundies, purples and oranges; deep hues and sparkling jewel tones. It’s the best time of the year to create with botanicals and florals!
Here are a few tips to get you started. You will need a funky seasonal waterproof container (try Grayco’s, their selection is amazing), one oasis block, waterproof oasis tape, (these items can be found at your local flower shop) a sharp knife to cut the oasis and some good kitchen grade scissors to cut the stems with. Next, you should go to your favorite local florist —  maybe Carolina Floral Design or Bitty’s — and purchase some flowers that strike your fancy. Look for high quality, diversity and texture. Go foraging in your yard for unusual greenery such as magnolia leaves, ferns, plumosa and interesting seed pods and berries. Now you are ready to create.
From something sophisticated and classic to something more garden like and bohemian, the sky is the limit when it comes to using your imagination on flower placement and design.
