How to make a spectacular composition with flowers


What are the steps to follow to create a composition with flowers that is at the same time spectacular, economical and easy to make? Decorations and floral compositions are able to enrich and decorate a room in a gracious and elegant way: it is not mandatory to be a gardening expert, contact a nursery (with the costs involved) or learn the art of ikebana to make decorations beautiful and colorful. In the first place, it is advisable to carefully choose the flowers that we intend to use for the composition: it is good to focus on rather striking colors, but without exaggerating, mixing at most three or four different shades. Classic and traditional roses will not be missing, in combination with seasonal flowers which, in addition to costing less, are also guaranteed over time, in the sense that they last longer than species bought out of season. In any garden or park, on the other hand, you can take leaves and twigs of different sizes and colors. The ideal would be to base the creation on two colors at most: for example, on the classic green and on a white shade, which are then able to bring out all the other colors.

What purpose the decorations will have



It is therefore necessary to decide what the purpose of the composition will be: should it be tied in a deck or will it serve as a centerpiece? Should it be placed in a vase or will it represent a gift? Depending on the purpose, obviously, it is necessary to decide which container or container to use. In case you opt for a vase, it will be preferable to focus on a container in earthenware or ceramic, very pretty and not too big; a decidedly pleasant effect, from the aesthetic point of view, will be obtained instead with vintage vases, perhaps in glass. To start the composition, we must start with the green parts, ie leaves and branches, and then continue with the smaller flowers, so as to give life to a structure on which the larger specimens can then be placed. In any case, it is advisable to arrange the latter by trying to create a balanced composition: for example, it is absolutely not recommended to place two identical flowers close together. The arrangement must also take into account the colors: it would be better to avoid the formation of uniform and colored spots, and a more inhomogeneous and variegated composition should be preferred, not flat. As the flowers are added, the vase must be progressively rotated, so that you are sure not to leave empty areas or undefended points on some side. The use of flowers for the composition, moreover, does not prevent the use of other elements as well: be it small stones or ears of corn, not too large pine cones or colored ribbons, satin bows or transparent stones, they will give a personal touch to the creation.

Where to place the decorations: at the entrance, in the kitchen, on a wardrobe or on the fireplace



At this point, all that remains is to decide where to place the decoration: let us consider that, in a house, the entrance represents a sort of visiting card, a presentation for guests. Whoever enters a home, therefore, cannot but remain favorably impressed by a cheerful and colorful bouquet: regardless of how elaborate or simple it is to create, the welcome message will be equally effective. For a particularly tall wardrobe or bookcase, instead, you can think of a waterfall composition to be placed on the top, while a shelf above a fireplace can be made elegant and graceful by a garland of magnolia. Any dark corner, on the other hand, can be illuminated, visually and not only, by a free-form floral decoration. We must not forget, then, the flowers that can be destined to a centerpiece, taking into account, however, that the colors of the decks must not necessarily correspond to the shades of the curtains, walls or furnishings, even more so if they are not present in nature. At home, floral arrangements can give a touch of liveliness even to a dining table or a coffee table, trying to respect the principles of harmony and balance: especially with regard to size.

Flowers composition: Design standards to be respected: balance, rhythm and proportion



There are, in effect, some design rules, which, although not universal and binding rules which must be respected by force of circumstances, nevertheless allow the creation of pleasant floral compositions thanks to simple guidelines to put into practice. Harmony, contrast, rhythm, proportion, balance: these are all principles that should regulate creation. With regard to balance, in particular, it is good to pay attention to the fact that an arrangement inside a vase may appear unbalanced or unbalanced even if it does not actually fall. For this reason, the various materials available must be used carefully and carefully, alternating formats, sizes and colors with precision. To make a trivial but effective example, a group of small flowers will stand out if placed next to a very large flower. Equally important is the proportion between the different parts, but also between the vase and the context in which it is inserted. The setting of the decorations also depends on the position, the design, the dimensions and the style of the vase in which they are placed.
