It is fascinating to know how different types of flowers and foliage are combined to make beautiful, distinctive bouquets. Flowers have individual shapes, textures, and colors. Line flowers are the tall flora that gives designs height, width, and a balanced look. Tall flowers give a design its basic shape. Liatris, snapdragons, delphiniums, larkspur, stock, gladiolus, tuberose, veronica, curly willow, bells_of_Ireland, stock and Canterbury bells are all excellent examples. The line flowers are inserted both vertically and horizontally in the design after greenery. Focal and filler flowers are then added to add to the shape, texture and sentiment of the design.
Compact contemporary designs made to sit on coffee tables or shelving units arranged in deep colored stylish vases have maximum impact when packed with white roses and steel colors. Stunning bouquets comprising of clusters of the brightest yellow roses and separate clusters of fragrant blue hyacinths divided by folded banana leaves is exquisitely elegant.
