Simplicity in Flower Arranging

image More is not always better.

While large flower bouquets are quite attractive and glorious, sometimes the simple displays offer even more. Individual flowers can get lost in a large arrangement and their simple beauty may go unnoticed. The next time you pick flowers from your garden consider picking just a few stems and placing them in separate bud vases. One of the advantages of arranging flowers this way is that you don’t have to have the quantity that is needed for a larger display. You don’t even have to have flowers blooming. Different sprigs of greenery can be relaxing to gaze upon as well. In the winter you can use a single branch or a sprig of evergreen.

Since displaying flowers this way, I’ve noticed that I look at them more often. In addition, my 4-year-old daughter, Emma, has learned the names of each flower I bring inside.
