    The Art of Flower Arranging prized since ancient times. In addition to floral principles and laws in different nations have their own rules of making the compositions of the colors, depending on whom and on what occasion bouquet designed. A lot depends on the imagination of the originator.

    Arrangement of flowers - bouquets

    We must start preparing flowers for a bouquet of cut flowers. Itself is cut at an angle. If you cut the flower does not immediately put into the water, but after some time, the slice should be resumed. And this should be done under running water. Moistened so cut eliminates the appearance of air pockets that would impede access of water to the stem.

    The best time for cutting flowers - early morning. But if not possible, cut-off can be done at night, taking the necessary steps to ensure that during the night cut the flower does not wilted. For this we need to know the specifics of each type of cut off, the rules of its preparation to be placed in a container with water. It must be remembered that all the cut flowers can not tolerate drafts and direct sunlight.

    Water is preferable to rain or distilled water, and in winter - snow. Can be put in tap water, but not very cold. Flowers should be at night in a cool place. Species such as rose and jasmine, can generally be immersed overnight in cool water.

    On the morning of flowers can be sprinkled with water. But we should not do with narcissus, tuberose and lily petals of which may turn black from the procedure. If the flowers are still faded, it is necessary to wrap them with a damp paper, dip the stems in deep water and hold it in that position an hour or two.

    As for the features of the premises in the water of certain colors, I have in mind the following: the stems of roses, hydrangeas, chrysanthemums, lilacs and jasmine before diving into the water should be split or crushed. Stems peonies, poppies, dahlias, poinsettia is recommended to burn a little over an open flame (dipped in boiling water) and then immediately dipped in cold water.

    This rule applies to all colors, stems contain a milky juice. Mimosas can be placed in hot water, but only cold water spray. On the stem of freesia is recommended to make longitudinal incisions (2-3 cm) and then put in water at room temperature.

    If the flowers were cut with the expectation that by morning they should dissolve, but it is slow, then speed up melting in the following way: a liter of water is added 1-2 drops of ammonia.

    Now, just about the technique of bouquets of cut flowers. First of all, of their number. Accepted compose a bouquet of an odd number of flowers to get away from the strict symmetry, which is not inherent in any artistic design. The festivities involve large bouquets, but the advantage of a small bouquet to his identity, especially if it gives itself the originator, which is particularly expensive.

    Optimal for all cases considered bouquet size 20-25 cm in diameter. The smallest flower - in the range of 5-7 cm is often replaced by a single flower on a long stem rose. But this does not mean that you can use any sort of rose. Must take into account the taste of who rose daritsya, his clothing style and even time of day when the rose will be presented. In the evening time preference, if all other things being equal, to give orange, red, yellow color.

    Day to choose less bright and flashy colors. The White Rose will always be good. Returning to the bouquets with a complex composition, which aim to achieve the expected decorative effect, we must remember that to achieve such an effect is possible only under the right color combinations matches the color of their harmony.

    Multi-colored compositions allow for a combination of blue and red, red, yellow, blue and pink. But in any case, these flowers are best divided green leaves (green shoots), or small flowers of intermediate colors, providing a smooth transition from one color to another active.

    White goes with almost all colors and shades. In drawing up the bouquets should be guided by the universal principle of contrast colors. If the sharp contrast of colors superposed obvious, you can enter between the plant neutral tones.

    Certain requirements must be observed and at the very formation of the "construction" of the bouquet. The bottom of the bouquet, as a rule, are bright and large flowers, and the top - a small and delicate in color. Bouquet can be round or one-sided. In round flowers are evenly from all sides and outward.

    Unilateral bouquets of flowers suggest thrust in one direction, and have an obvious difference in the length of the stem. These flowers are usually placed in corners of the room and the places where it is assumed one-sided view. Whatever the shape of the bouquet, flowers in it to assemble freely and naturally.

    To bouquet lasted longer, it is necessary to take into account when drawing up and the time of the incompatibility of the individual colors to each other. For example, lilies inhibit poppies, daisies and cornflowers, which quickly fade away from this neighborhood. Roses are always accelerate fading of colors in one bouquet.

    Tubular lily, lilies, daffodils and carnations are aggressive oppressors of the majority of species of flowers. Daffodils for this reason that trouble dealing with tulips. Twig of geranium or arborvitae is very desirable in any bouquet as contribute to the preservation of cut flowers.
