Tips for making floral compositions
Even though compositions and floral decoration in general, are based on the creativity and tastes of each person, the truth is that taking into consideration a series of norms the results may be even more spectacular. With these guidelines in mind, you will surely create a spectacular plant decoration for your interior spaces.
Indoors, substitute natural plants for preserved plants. In addition to obtaining similar results in terms of beauty and decoration value, preserved plants and flowers do not need water, light, care, or maintenance to maintain their qualities.
Choose wisely the mix of plants, flowers, and foliage varieties, the colors, and even the number of units. If you put too much, the ambiance will feel cramped instead of being calm and cozy.
If we decide to make compositions with two types of plants, another element should exist to be the central or intermediate focus. In this way, the result is more harmonious. For example, we can place plants on both sides of a door, in this way it becomes the third element of a composition.
When making a floral decoration for a large interior space, like the living room or the entrance of the house, small size flowers are usually used next to potted shrubs, like the exotic Jumbo Juniperus Procumbes, with high ornamental power.
Style of decoration
In order for the final result to be harmonious and proportionate, the chosen varieties should be used as the finishing touch of the decoration. For example, for a contemporary decoration, you can opt for a Prince of Wales tree, while a Hedera Arborea – sphere-shaped topiary – in a pot will go perfectly in the entrance hall.
If you want to give a touch of life and nature to a small space like your desk, or an auxiliary table, nothing like bonsai Procumbes or Tamaracifolia to brighten up and give life to that corner.
Small plants are ideal to enhance windows and bookcases. Basket centerpieces also look very good, it gives a rustic and natural touch to a room. Try with some cheery red carnations or with some precious Dendrobium orchids.
Living rooms or large interior spaces
If you want to give all the prominence to an interior patio, a hall, or the most important corner of your living room, the Eucaliptus Populus would be a good option.
In general, for interior compositions, at least three types of plants are used in feng shui thought. If they are done with only two varieties, one of them will prevail over the other and will stand out more. The end result will be unbalanced and with the feeling that “something is missing”
Example of floral composition
Floral composition with Cyperus papyrus and roses
The Cyperus papyrus or papyrus is an aquatic plant whose main characteristic is its striking stems. Even though it’s a water plant it can be cultivated in pots creating adequate conditions for its growth even though a little bit more practice and perseverance are needed for it. The papyrus plant has a high ornamental value and it’s often used as part of the most varied floral compositions.
How to make a floral composition with Cyperus papyrus and preserved White roses
We have chosen the color white because this tonality can be adapted to all types of environments, although if you prefer you can use preserved roses in the color you like the most or combine them with other flowers like chrysanthemums or the cymbidium.
Choose the container in which you want to make your floral decoration. Keep in mind that if you are going to place it as a centerpiece or over a shelf, the container will have to be smaller. On the contrary, if the floral composition is going to be placed in a pot in the hall or the living room, you can use larger pots or containers.
If you prefer, you can give a personal touch to your compositions by substituting the pots for other types of containers you have at home: a brass watering can, a fishbowl, a wooden box, or even a birdcage. They turn out beautiful and original!
To make a floral art decoration in a floor pot, (to place it in the hall, for example), choose a good size of papyrus stems (100-110 cm) to be the base of the composition. To keep them firmly attached, place a block of floral foam and sick the stems and leaves in an artistic way.
If you want your Cyperus papyrus and roses composition to have a minimalist appearance, place the Cyperus papyrus leaves symmetrically in rows of different heights, with roses at the base. The effect is impressive!
In Verdissimo you will find a great variety of preserved plants and flowers to create floral compositions for interior decoration.
