For every client I do a sample so we can ensure they are happy on the day of their event. I consider this sample more of a tablescape than I do a traditional centerpiece. The bride was getting married on December 23rd and the reception was being held at a golf club in a room with wood beams and a large stone fireplace so she wanted something that would compliment the venues rustic elegance. After this picture was taken we decided to plug in some red hypericum berries for a little more color and some pine cones for texture. If you are going to use Amaryllis, make sure you get them way in advance because they come in a tight bud and you want to have plenty of time for them to open up to their full potential. We had to keep adding warm water in the buckets of the cut stems in order to expedite the process.

The bride's bouquet was comprised of the same Amaryllis with white Open Cut Callas, white Roses, and green Magnolia leaves.

dried floral arrangementYou will need to look carefully at the edges of the flowers you buy to ensure they are not frayed or damaged, which would not look very appealing in a floral arrangement. Deciding on a florist to do a very special arrangement for you can be dificult; it is wise to seek personal recommendations from friends and family.

dried floral arrangementBeautiful dining rooms that have an elegant style about them usually have a floral arrangement made from roses on the table as a centerpiece. To start pressing your own dried flowers would be a great idea if you were going to start making floral arrangements. Flowers express shops can be found in many cities; these shops are helpful when you are trying to get flowers in a hurry.

magnolia floral arrangementTraditional arrangements such as floral wreaths were said to symbolize eternal life due to its shape being in a circle. Ask your florist about which flower varieties do well in your climate; this way you will have an idea about how long the floral arrangement will stay alive.
