Floral arrangements are a classic, delicate, and chic way to decorate and bring harmony and life to our home. When the budget sometimes does not allow us to decorate our home the way we would like to, we can resort to flower arrangements.
Think of the infinite amount of colors, shapes, and smells that flowers have. Combining them, you can make your home a paradise, giving it that touch of freshness and naturalness. Making flower arrangements is something simple and a perfect opportunity for family activities. Everyone can contribute a little and get carried away by creativity.
Here are some ideal flowers to start making your own arrangements:
The carnation flower is perfect for making floral arrangements. Its bushy shape with lots of petals and variety in colors make it the go-to. This flower has different meanings depending on its color. White carnations represent peace and purity; red carnations symbolize love; pink carnations represent motherly love and friendship. This flower is considered one of the most beautiful in the world, and the best part is that it blooms all year round.
Hydrangeas are very colorful and voluminous flowers that create an exuberant and peaceful atmosphere at home. These beautiful flowers can be found in different shades: pink, red, purple, green, white, and blue, or with a combination of several. There are also some that change color as the seasons go by. The hydrangea is a flower full of symbolism such as gratitude, abundance, beauty, and grace.
This flower is widely used in the world of floristry. Thanks to its small size and white color, it has become a trend that makes it combinable with other larger and colorful flowers, making it the perfect complement for floral arrangements.
After choosing the type of flower you will use, the most important thing is to know what kind of arrangement you want and where you want it. Not all arrangements must be conventional, and in an expensive vase, you can play with different objects you already have at home.
We are used to seeing garlands during the holidays or on birthdays, but the truth is that we can use them at any time of the year. Garlands are a great option when you don’t have much space at home or if you want to avoid broken vases when there are small children and pets at home.
Using reusable jars for your arrangements is a great option. Besides looking spectacular, you are collaborating with the environment. You can use them to put fresh flowers, or if you prefer something more durable, use dried flowers.
The best thing about decorating with flowers is that they stand out so much that they will look great no matter what container you put them in. Glasses and even cans can serve as vases if you know how to decorate them. You can paint them and even line them with some rope to give them that rustic touch.
