The beauty and fragrance of flowers are for some reason much more noticeable if you are the arranger of a great bouquet. Intricacies and patterns will come alive to you that you have never noticed before, and think about how impressed your friends will be when you tell them that you made that beautiful design yourself! If you are a creative type that loves flowers, keep reading for practical principles of floral design. It's easier than you might think.
Traditional flower designs do not make use of any accessories apart from the vase, but rather the focus is on the number and colours of the flowers. Oriental flower designs focus on the appearance of the arrangement, linear lines that emphasise the negative spaces and texture and form of the flowers. A modern flower arrangement includes the minimal use of bright flowers and more accessories. It does not follow the traditional outline of arranging flowers as the styling depends solely on the preferences of the designer.
