Learning simple flower arrangements allows you to save money on flower decorations, and still maintain elegance in your home. Knowing some vital information about flower arrangements can offer you multiple benefits.

Initially, you have to prepare the flowers by removing its unnecessary parts. Using sharp scissors or clippers, remove the thorns from the flower stem and cut all excess leaves that might get submerged in water.

The Basics of the Proper Flower Arrangement:

  • Larger flowers should always be at the center.
  • Smaller flowers are placed around bigger ones.
  • Always use floral foam or tape to keep the flowers in place.
  • Extra spaces can be filled with foliage and tiny flowers.   

Your flower decorations can significantly influence the mind’s perception and emotions of people looking into it through color psychology. While the human eye can recognize a million shades of colors, they generally fall into two categories, warm and cool.
