Arranging Spring Flowers in Houston Homes

Whether your floral arrangement is placed at the entryway or on the dining room table, spring flowers are a surefire way to freshen and brighten a room. Below are the basic steps you need to make a flower arrangement for your home!

  1. Picking your Flowers: No matter what color scheme you are going for, almost all flower arrangements use three elements: the main flowers, accent flowers, and a green plant element. The main flowers usually have large blooms and are the most central elements of the floral arrangements. Accent flowers tend to be smaller and are great for filling in gaps in the arrangement and adding color to the scheme. Finally, we also pick a green, leafy plant to help create the shape of the arrangement and also add accents. The color of the flowers set the mood and tone of the arrangement.

  2. Selecting the Container: There are three considerations when deciding on a container: the color and theme of the flower arrangement, location of the arrangement, and the desired lifespan of the floral arrangement. Naturally, you would like the color of the container to work well with the floral arrangement. Where you would like to set the flower arrangement determines what container you would like to use. For example, shorter arrangements are preferred for dining room tables whereas tall arrangements are best for end tables and corners; therefore baskets and short vases are best for short arrangements and tall vases for long flower arrangements. Tall vases are also preferable if you would like your flower arrangement to last a while since they are able to hold water more efficiently than baskets or small vases.

  3. Arranging your Flowers: The way you arrange the flowers depends on the container. Shallow and oddly shaped containers are not good for holding flowers in a specific position. To arrange flowers in these kinds of containers, one needs flower foam. Vases are better at holding flowers and keeping them in place. One also needs to consider what shape they would like their flower arrangement to be. Remember though, this is YOUR flower arrangement! Keep playing with it until you are happy with the design and feel of the arrangement.
