Professional florists would categorise the styles of flower arrangements as such: Traditional, oriental and modern flower arrangements. Traditional flower design, also known as Western flower arrangements, is the time_honoured common flower arranging style where the design is enriched with a large number of beautiful, colourful flowers. Apart from the vase in which the flowers are arranged, almost no other accessories are used in this flower style.
Single, larger blossom flowers, such as roses, carnations, zinnias, tulips or lilies, usually make up the focal points of a piece. Taller stems with multiple flowers can balance things nicely. Delphinium, gladiolus, and snapdragon are good examples of flowers that can add extra height and texture. "Filler" flowers, or stems with many small buds, are great for topping of a bouquet with a full and delicate look.
