Have you ever tried to make a bouquet, and found that it fell flat? And worse yet, you really didn’t know why? It’s not your fault. You just need to follow these three simple rules for a better bouquet every time. By using shape, colour, and texture to your advantage, you can make a beautiful bouquet, even if you feel you’re not creative or untalented.
Let’s go through the rules so you can make a nicer bouquet today
Rule 1: Play with Texture
A bouquet with all round flowers or all spiky flowers usually falls flat. When you’re choosing flowers, get a mix of spiky, round, and loose flowers.
Rule 2: Don’t forget the Greens!
A bouquet that sings isn’t all about the flowers. You also need a mix of greens and filler, or small flowers to give it more visual interest.
Rule 3: Play with Vibrants, Lights, and Darks
A bouquet with all one colour or tone will look nice, but it too can also fall flat. To keep your bouquet looking good, you’ll need two main colours that are vibrant, one darker colour, and one lighter colour. You can break this rule, but when you’re first learning, this rule will help you be successful every time.
