It’s one thing to have beautiful flowers. It’s another to present them well and make them look stunning. This is a skill in itself, but you don’t need to be a trained florist to make sure your flowers look beautiful. Here are some things you should think about to get the mroses-1420719_1280ost out of your flowers:

  • What will they be used for? Are they purely to decorate a room, are they for an event or are they a gift? Think about the setting and how the types of flowers will fit in. For example, if you are choosing flowers for a bright room, maybe choose something like white roses or white lilies to make sure they don’t clash.
  • How will you arrange them? If this isn’t a skill you have perfected, try watching an online tutorial. This can be a great way to pick up some tips and learn more about how to arrange flowers in no time at all. It might take a little while to get it right, but keep practising.
  • How will your present the flowers? Some people prefer to simply be presented with a bouquet containing traditional flowers like freesias, peonies and sweetheart roses, whilst others prefer something more elaborate with ribbons, lace and other intricate additions.
  • What will the flowers be in? Make sure if you are giving somebody flowers that you have got an appropriate vase for them, or if they won’t be going into a vase, know how you are going to tie and present the bouquet. If they are going to be used in a centrepiece or similar, consider the size of the flowers you are using.

Flowers will look beautiful in many different types of bouquet and presentation. Play around with some ideas and be as creative as you like – it would be difficult to go too far and ruin the natural beauty of flowers.
