Making vases come alive

Having vases might sound like a simple and minor change to the interior design of the home, but they have an impressive visual impact to turn dull rooms into wonders with their presence. Vases with beautiful flower arrangements enhance and improve your mood. So, bring those beautiful vases alive, with these quick tips on flower arrangement

If you want to put loose flowers into a vase, first fill it with water, then strip the stems so that no leaves will be covered with water. Cut stems to about twice the height of your vase, leaving several stems an inch or two longer for the center of your bouquet.

Line flowers are tall, and give the bouquet height, width, and a balanced look. Use branches and tall foliage - gladiolus, snapdragons, delphinium, and tuberose are also great. These look striking by themselves in a tall cylindrical vase.

Mass flowers, sometimes referred to as ‘face flowers’ give weight and mass to your bouquet, and are usually the focal point of colour and interest. Examples are roses, carnations, gerbera, sunflowers, lilies, tulips, zinnias and chrysanthemums. Use them in a simple vase.

Filler flowers – stems with many little flowers and foliage – will round out the bouquet and give it a full, soft look. Use just a few sprigs alone in a vase to give simple elegance to the room.

Insert stems of foliage and filler flowers. Criss-cross the stems as you insert them in your vase. This will create a grid that will help hold the other flowers in place.

Starting at the rim of your vase and working toward the center, add other flowers, spacing them as if they were points on a triangle. Place the longest stems in the center of your bouquet. Stand back and review your bouquet, making adjustments if needed.

Here’s a quick trick for extra stem support – try putting in some marbles or small pebbles first.
