Choose a container that will complement the shape and color scheme you have in mind. If you are just starting out, go with a traditional size vase __ not too tall, and not to squat. As a general rule, your container should be about one_third to one_half the size of your finished arrangement. So, for a vased bouquet you'll need mostly flowers with longer stems. A smaller bowl or basket is fine, too. You'll simply have to cut stems shorter and may need floral foam to help position each bloom. It helps to start with the simpler designs and work your way up, and a vased bouquet is often recommended for a first project.
Seasonal flowers can be used to create a more exotic bouquet. During the winter months be sure to include flowers such as the iris, gladioli, strelitzia, hyacinth, anemones, calendula or daffodils. In the spring season the colourful lily, daisy, orchid, narcissus, poppy, sweet pea or tulip will brighten up your bouquet. Brighten somebody's day with a flower arrangement delivered to their doorstep. Your thoughtfulness and sentiments will be felt when you have a beautiful bouquet or arrangement created especially for them.
