Having fresh flowers in my home always makes me feel happy. Everyone likes flowers right!?
I worked as a florist for several years while I was studying and I still love to play around with them at home. A couple of weeks ago I put this bunch together, I tend to do things that are simple and sweet. I thought I would share some tips and tricks with you about flowers and flower arranging.
(These are tulips and roses.They still need some time to open up before they look there best)
-Always buy your flowers when they are mostly closed because they will last longer. I know its tempting to buy them when they are open and looking lovely, but It is definitely worth waiting for them to show their beauty.
-Flowers like orchids, lilly's and tulips last longer than flowers like roses, daffodils and iris. Generally tropical flowers last longer than cottage flowers.
-Snip the stems of your flowers and put a little sprinkle of sugar in the water and it makes your flowers last longer.
-Changing the water regularly also helps them last longer (dirty water doesn't look that pleasing either)
-Like most most things when designing, flowers look better in 3's. Either in groups of 3 or 3 types of flowers. Less in more when decorating with flowers. You can over do a bouquet if you include to many flowers.
