To arrange flowers in a decorative, appealing and successfull fashion _preconceived ideas as 'the arrangement must be 1 1/2 times the size of the container' 'every stem must be wired' 'matching color schemes' and 'artsy-fartsy designs' should be abandoned for good. First and upmost, learn to train your eyes studying nature and understand how these absurd, man made restrictions are disregarded. Mother Nature blends the seasons with designs of equal opportunity to colors and textures. Easy and uncomplicated its designs reflect styles that range from the wild and color-shock explosive to subtle, delicate and exotic. There's no need to create complicated, very elaborate designs with careful placing of each flower -one stem at the time-around the center, flowers don't really grow that way, so why arrange them such? Nature displays plants and flowers in clusters and bunches of the same variety without any particular pattern. Clumps can be found at different heights and flowers overlay one another, giving the eye a sense of wander and excitement, soon we find ourselves seeking to spot each shape and color within the display. This "joy" we experience when looking at a beautiful bouquet is the result of an intelligent designer who understood and adopted Nature's patterns, instead of his own. When creating a bouquet, remember that textures, balance and gravity play important parts in your design and that your choice of container is "crucial" to the success of your arrangement. Lastly, whatever you do, never stray away from Mother Nature. Avoid stiff, harsh lines and mixtures in your arrangements or you will be left with chaotic bushes with no definition and very little sense, if any.
