All too often, we take flowers for granted and just rely on their natural beauty. Yet there are professionals who are taking them to a whole new level. These are those who have specialised in the floral arrangement industry.
A Lot to Learn
Many florists will tell you they started off in the industry with a natural passion for flowers, and they seem to have some artistic flair with them. Arranging them, so they looked even better was natural to them. But, it got to the point where there was so much to learn about this that it became a form of study.
Variations in Floral Styles
One of the many things that are intriguing about floral arrangements is that they can look so different in so many countries. This can act as a whole tourist attraction. When people are visiting different places that are known for their flora, they want to see them as tourists.
Some styles are so favoured that they have become named by a specific technique. These include:
- Modern and European: Here the focus is used on incorporating space along with the types of materials that are used in these arrangements. Space is created between each flower as they are placed asymmetrically. The choice of flowers is very important and tends to lean towards those that are classed as exotic. Within these are are the bird of paradise which is a favourite and then may be housed with a collection of various lilies.
- The English Garden: Another favourite because it has been around for so long as still possesses many of its traditional stylings. Although it has become modernised over the last several years as more choices in colours and hybrids, have become available.
The art of floral arrangement is an intriguing one, and its concept should be encouraged as it plays some a critical role in this industry.
