Flower Arrangement 101

The love month is drawing near. This Valentines, why not opt for a low keyed yet equally romantic surprise for your loved one? Traditional favorites like flowers coupled with his or her perfumes and chocolates are the answers to today's tight-budget living.

Flowers, when personally arranged, and personally delivered, say it all -- time, effort and love.

Below are some practical tips on Valentine flower arrangement:

  • Arrangement must depend upon the receiver.

  • For a wrapped bouquet with dried abaca weave or crazy cut, make sure the color of your wrapping materials compliments with the flowers.

  • Should you opt to use clear containers, add square-cut colored foam to hide the green foam at the bottom.

  • Use flowers in different stages of development, from bud to full bloom. A rosebud suggests a heart innocent of love. a single-stemmed one in full bloom means "I love you". Bouquet of roses in full bloom signifies gratitude.

  • Place the buds with long stems at the top and short stems at the sides. Put the largest and fullest flower at the center with blossoming flowers around the edges, to form a focal area.

  • Turn open flowers such as roses, daffodils, gerbera, etc., at different angles to show a different shape.

  • Neutral colors such as white, orange, peach, blue, and yellow flowers are appropriate for men. Almost any color fits women depending on the intended message. Pink signifies gratitude, yellow is for apology, white is for beauty, and red is for love, courage and respect.

  • Let the color of the flowers and foliage compliment.

  • Make use of different types of foliage.

  • Use less flowers to allow you to mix-and-match foliage creatively.

  • Incorporate balloons, stuffed toys, Valentine cards, or chocolates to your arrangement
