A recent issue of Flowers& features a design tutorial from a floral instruction website called Bloomtube. We love this new European trend of throwing in a bold pop of color to catch the eye! A neon orange-painted manzanita branch is in dramatic contrast to the composition of white amaryllis, pink tulips and pale pink roses.
The success of this arrangement is the result of a few deft moves:
1. The horizontal plane includes the painted branch and a cherry blossom stem, and the nuanced differences in the organic shape of each work well together.
2. The arrangement is placed in a pale blue bowl. Blue is on the opposite end of the color wheel as orange, so each one enhances the other.
3. The cluster of premium flowers is varying pale shades is the heart and soul of this design–without really fresh, beautiful flowers, you’ve got nothing.
