Making a lovely vase of flowers out of your valentine’s bouquet is both calming and allows you to exhibit your creativity. Remember that when it comes to styling, there are no hard and fast rules, so feel free to experiment with different containers, flower varieties, greenery, and placing. Here are our top four floral styling techniques.
1. BE VASE WISE
A lovely vase will complement any bouquet. The good news is that they come in different shapes and sizes and won't set you back an arm and a leg. By visiting your local op shop or charity shop, we've found some gorgeous antique things with a lot of character for less than Php.200. When choosing a vase, choosing one with a thinner neck might be beneficial. This will support your flowers and allow you to fan them out, creating the illusion of fullness. If the neck of your vase is too broad, you may form a grid structure over the top using transparent adhesive tape to give your flowers extra support.
2. CHOOSE YOUR SIDE
As a general rule, begin with the larger flowers and work your way down to the smaller ones. If you want to place the bouquet against a wall, style your stems from this angle alone to make a striking front. In other words, face the bigger 'hero' blooms outwards. This, like adding greenery, will increase the aesthetic impact of your arrangement.
After you've arranged your lovely blossoms, place them on a table wrapped with colorful linen or draped with silk ribbons. Alternatively, you may scatter a few items around the vase to add interest. When arranging a space for a party, this may have a big influence.
4. BOUQUET MAINTENANCE
As bacteria multiply, the water in the vase will begin to cloud after 2-3 days. This is not only bad for your flowers, but it is also ugly. Maintain the appearance of your bouquet by keeping the water clean and eliminating any wilted flowers. Re-trimming your stems simultaneously is also a good idea since it allows them to absorb more water, increasing the life of the vase.
