Time and again, it has been a real challenge in picking a suitable flower for an occasion. Questions like (Which color will be appropriate for any occasion or event? What kind of flower should I pick?) might be running through your mind. To successfully make a flower bouquet that will fit into every event, there are some factors you need to consider. For starters, you have to figure out what you want your flower arrangement and colors to depict. Having this at the back of your mind will guide you towards making a beautiful flower bouquet that will fit perfectly for any occasion.
No two persons are completely identical. The same is true for flowers; every flower has its unique scent, color, and formation. So, to successfully combine flowers to form a bouquet, you have to find a balance, this is because some flowers don’t mix well with others while others mix perfectly with other flowers. A decorated floral designer and author of the book “Bouquet with Personality” liked the process of gathering flowers to selecting people for an event. This concept is particularly true because if flowers used for a bouquet do not complement each other, the result will be awful.
In this article, we are going to discuss some tips that will help you create a beautiful bouquet that will be suitable for different events.
The first tip we are going to consider is the color of the flowers you plan to use in creating your bouquet. If you want to stir up emotion with flowers, then you should use the colors to your advantage. Florist and color experts know that colors are a good way to stir up emotions. For example, yellow depicts happiness, red depicts excitement, and blue depicts serenity. What you should do therefore is to choose flowers that reflect the quality you want to put across.
Follow your instincts
If you want to express an emotion using flowers, then you must keep in mind the shape of the blossom, the color and the scent of the flower. A flower like the Red zinnias usually makes some people feel happy, light and gives them that sense of summer. So what you should do here is to think deeply about the person you plan to give the bouquet as well as the emotion you want to stir up.
Before going to a wholesale flower market or a local flower shop to get flowers, you have to consider the occasion you plan to use the flowers you plan to purchase. The kind of flower you are likely to pick will depend on a large extent on the event or occasion you plan on using it for. Your choice of flowers, as well as the vase you plan to use, should match the tone of your event. Below is a quick guide that will push you in the right direction when picking a flower for an event
- Formality: – Lilies, amaryllis or roses
- Romance or love: – Tulips or roses

Keep your recipient in mind
When making a bouquet, don’t just pick only flowers that you love and are used to. Rather, think about the person you plan to give the flowers. Also, you have to consider the kind of emotion you want to express. If you want to let someone know that you have them at the back of your mind when picking a flower, find something that reflects their taste or their personality. A tip that can help you here is to find something that is similar to their favorite cologne.
The shape and texture
The final tip we are going to be considering is the texture of the petals and the shape of the flower you plan to use. When creating a bouquet, ensure that you check the compatibility of the shape and texture of the flowers you plan to use. Use flowers with bold blossoms to take the major role and use flowers with a softer blossom as a compliment.
Making a flower bouquet that will fit into any event is never easy, but if you apply the tips in this article, you will find it easier to make a beautiful bouquet that your recipient will appreciate.
