Flower Arranging Tips-Start With GREENERY

Hi There,

I taught a flower arranging class a week ago to a local Gardening Club. The one thing that all the ladies kept repeating to me and the biggest take away was this tip…..always start your flower arrangement with your greenery. The greenery acts as an armature and holds the flower stems in place when you are ready to add your flowers. If you are working with floral foam you would still start with your greenery, because the goal is to HIDE all of your mechanics….mechanics are things like floral foam and tape. Both are integral to the durability of the centerpiece, but you don’t want to see either. The exception to this rule is if you are using some of the new Colored Floral Foam. It is made in red, lime green, harvest orange,grey, cream/ivory and black. And, the purpose of using the colored foam is to let it show!
