Combining Greens with 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.
