By: lynter
There are a lot of things to take into consideration before you make a floral arrangement. It is critical that you choose the correct materials before you begin your arrangement.

You first need to decide where your arrangement is going to be placed. Is it going to be displayed in the living room or kitchen? Is your arrangement for a special event or for personal use? All of these questions are very important when it comes to designing your floral arrangement.

Once you have decided on what type of floral design to make, you need to find a vase that is suitable for the arrangements you are going to create. If your flower arrangement is for personal use, a clear glass vase will be do nicely. If you are making your floral arrangement for a special event, then specialty vases are available at craft stores and in department stores.

When you begin to construct your floral designs, fill the vase of your choice with warm water. A non-traditional holder such as oasis foam may be used to hold the floral arrangement in place. This also can be found in any craft store.

Have all of the material that you will use right in front of you. Once you start putting your floral arrangement together, it may be difficult to leave it.

The flowers that you choose should have stems about one and a half times the height of the vase. Cut the stems to the desired length. You can keep the arrangement looking fresh by arranging the big flowers in the back as well any large foliage.

Smaller flowers and foliage should be arranged in the front of the vase. You want to keep symmetry in your arrangement. Make sure that when you are making your floral arrangement that you add your flowers evenly around the vase.

Adding decorative marbles or stones to the bottom of the vase will assist the stems in standing up straight in the vase. By adding the marbles and the stones will also accent your piece.

The craft of flower arrangements is becoming more popular. Cities and towns across America have courses at local high school and civic centers to teach the art of floral arrangements.

If you do not have the time to go to classes, you can search through magazines to find what type of arrangement you want to create. There are many magazines that are dedicated especially to the art of flowers.

Summary:

Floral arrangements can be created in any type of container. It is limited only by your imagination. If you want to try your hand at it, start with something small.
