Flower arrangements look gorgeous and they bring some natural freshness to your home. They don’t need to be fancy, you could take the little pieces of lace, and buttons and paper form your home and incorporate them in your design. Allow flower delivery Singapore to help you choose a lovely selection of flowers.
Tips to consider
Make an environmentally friendly vase. Take some empty yoghurt pots and glass jars and decorate them with some lace, paint and buttons that you find around the house.
You should go for a random arrangement with the flowers arranged in an asymmetry design. Ask flower delivery Singapore to send you those that vary in depth and height. You could also adjust them to your liking by trimming the stems of the flowers and adding some of shrubs and foliage from your back garden. So, take your time browsing the variety of plants at the flower shop, choosing the ones that match the occasion.
Prepping the arrangement
Before you begin arranging the flowers, check that you are seated in a stop which puts you on eye level with the arrangement. This will allow you to view your arrangement from the correct angle, and make changes when needed.
You should remove any thorns and sharp edges from the flowers, cutting the stems at a 45 degree angle and trimming any excess leaves, especially the ones which will be under the water. The florist Singapore does this as the action gives your flowers a long life and stops the leaves, which will rot under water, from contaminating the rest of your arrangement.
Designing your arrangement
Create the foundation for your flowers using foliage. You need to arrange them so it’s an asymmetrical shape that is height at the back and rests against your vase’s lip. Remember to keep an eye on the width of the foundation; you still need to add the flowers!
Alternatively, you could use a piece of foam to create the foundation of your flower arrangement. You need to water the arrangement every few days, if you choose to use foam. You can also try chicken wire, floral tap or a flower frog. The idea is to create a base that you can arrange your flowers around.
Next, add any flowers with a larger ‘face’ first, arranging them so that they are at different heights. The foliage stems that makeup up your foundation, will help to keep hold the flowers in place.
Now add a wispy element, weaving ferns and climbing flowers into the arrangement. They should be arranged in three spots; high on the side, in the middle of your larger flowers and spilling out of the vase.
If you are adding smaller flowers try bundling them into a single bouquet, tying the stems with rubber bands. This will stop them from getting lost in the batch.
You could try something different by incorporating fruit into the design. With small berries, cherry tomatoes and grapes which are still on their vein you could create a gorgeous fruit basket.
Remember the arrangement will take time to create, and you will need to make adjustments as you go. If you get stuck, there are plenty of florist in Singapore who are willing to help you out!
