OUR TIPS ON COMBINING GREENS & FLOWERS
One of the first things to keep in mind when creating a design is color. Color is fundamental in any design, just as important as form (shape) & texture. There are lots of different ways to combine colors that can make your arrangement stand out! Color has three main components: hue (what most of us look at when we see a color), value (from light to dark of a given color) and saturation (the intensity of a color). We're going to focus specifically on hue.
Let's think of the color wheel. For vibrant intense designs, try combining complementary colors (colors that are across each other on the color wheel) in your bouquets or arrangements. For example, yellow-purple, blue-orange, red-green. Complimentary colors combined in a design tend to enhance their intensity.
If you're looking soothing, romantic designs, we recommend analogous colors (colors next to each other on the color wheel). For example, blue-purple, blue-green, yellow-green, pink-red.
When thinking of mixing in the greenery or foliage, our rule of thumb is to think about where the flowers & leaves you're putting in your design come from or where they're native to. For example, combine a tropical leaf (like Dásos Premium Fishtail), with a tropical choice of flowers (like Bird of Paradise, for example). This makes the overall design more coherent and gives it a more harmonious feeling.
