Greetings. Thanks for taking the time to learn my method for foolproof flower arranging at home! Let's talk about the selection of flowers, greens, etcetera. Remember I mentioned something about harmony between everything in your arrangement? Of course there is no exact science- it's meant to be mixed up.

This rule of thumb helps me stay focused when I'm shopping for flowers because it's far too easy to get carried away. Been there, done that, loved it! But sure didn't like the bill. This guide also helps my arrangements from looking too cookie-cutter perfect and ensures there is a natural flow within my work. I prefer a natural, organic look to my flowers. Find out below the who, what and why of your selection.
