Floral arrangements are decorative elements that really attract attention because they fill spaces with life, freshness, and lots of colour.
In this article, we’ll tell you how to make floral arrangements and what materials are essential for your floral composition to be spectacular, beautiful, and innovative.
The main materials for creating different floral arrangements
- Vase or container: Firstly, you need to choose the containers or vases in which you are going to make your floral compositions. These vases should be chosen depending on the style of decoration in the room: vintage, rustic, minimalist… The style doesn’t just influence the form, also the materials. For example, if your room is minimalist, ideally the container will be geometric with simple and straight lines and made from a metal or glass material. Or, if the room is rustic, wood would be your best bet.
- Flowers and plants: Then you must choose the plants and flowers that you are going to use in your floral arrangements. If you decide that you will only use one kind of flower for your floral compositions, choose the most spectacular: roses, gardenias, etc.… On the other hand, if you decide to make an arrangement by combining different flowers and plants, you must keep in mind both the style of the room and the container, and the combination of both products. One of the most beautiful floral compositions is an arrangement with roses and orchids. It’s extremely elegant, simple, glamorous, and gives a really minimalist and oriental style.
