They have the power to transform a space from utterly dull and lackluster to vivacious and booming with personality. They come in many shapes and sizes and can easily be catered to your personality. They are beautiful and inspiring. The catch: There are so many possibilities! While floral arrangements might seem like a no brainer, they actually take quite a bit of work, in consideration alone. Finding the perfect floral arrangement might seem like an arduous task but there are a few easy things to keep in mind that can help ease the anxiety.
Florist or no florist?
There are two things that you must first consider when thinking about flowers – do you want them put together for you, or are you more of a DIY type person. Regardless of the occasion, you can either look to buy your ready-made bouquets or mix or match to create your own. The benefit of using a florist is that you don’t have to worry about artistry if that is concerning to you. The downside is that you don’t get as much of a hand in the design. Whatever works for you, start with that. The next step is figuring out what you want.
Know what you like
Let’s say that you opted for a florist. Just because you are not physically putting the flowers in a vase does not mean you are not designing something. Flowers are yours to make your own, so be active in the decision making. For example, knowing what is in season, and what kinds of colors you are looking for can be a huge advantage when you step into a shop. Communicate what you want to the florist, which leads to the next key thing to remember – planning ahead.
