Spring will burst forth with a flurry of color and all the variety of an English garden. Tulips, iris, hyacinth, freesia, lisianthus, ranunculus and asters are just some of the season's best. Fashionable designs may include simple clusters with just one type of bloom, compact nosegays with an abundance of varied blossoms and tall vased bouquets with stylish blooming branches. Traditional pastels will be back, with a decidedly feminine flair, but don't be surprised by occasional accents in bright fashion colors.
The utmost importance in an arrangement is the overall harmony and balance. It is possible to combine two or more flowers in one floral design, but in this case choosing flowers that are compatible with each other is of utmost importance. In other words, the key to a well_balanced arrangement is to choose flowers that can strengthen the beauty of each other. What's important to getting the most out of the components of an arrangement is the harmony between the floral material and the container, as well as the overall balance. No matter how beautiful a flower may be on its own, if it does not harmonize with the rest of the material, the balance is lost and the beauty of the flower is wasted.
