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.
Modern flower arrangements are the aesthetic use of clean, sleek lines, but generally all the styling depends on the likes and dislikes of the designer. The design of such an arrangement does not follow the traditional outline of arranging flowers. Instead the use of different accessories is combined with the minimal use of bright flowers. Modern flower arrangements make use of ornamental geometric motifs and clean_lined containers to carry the geometric theme through into everyday life.
