Seasonal Statements _ Summer looks bright, with flashy colors, especially greens, oranges and yellows, dominating the scene. Gerber daisies, sunflowers, lilies and a spectacular array of colored roses are the mainstay. Designs are casual, contemporary, dramatic, or even outrageous. Blazing tropicals are growing in popularity, too.
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.
