How to Buy Flower Arrangements

veryone in this world loves the beauty, color and of course, the fragrance of flowers. And this is the reason why flowers are one of the best decorating items preferred by people the year round. However, when it comes to buying flowers, whether for a particular occasion or generally, there are very few people who are aware of how to buy flower arrangements.


Buying flowers for any season or occasion requires a certain bit of floral knowledge and shopping skills. To ensure that you choose the best flower arrangements for your decorating scheme, there are some factors that you must keep in mind. We explain these out below to you, to help you solve your problem of how to buy flower arrangements.

First and foremost, you need to compare the variety of flowers and the prices offered by different florists in your area. Ask your local florist about the different varieties of flowers available in the particular season. While some florists import flowers the year-round, others work on a seasonal basis. When ordering a special variety of flowers like the sterling roses, it is advisable to give the florist a notice of a couple of weeks beforehand.

The next thing is to determine the area where you would place the flower arrangement because it would be the size and shape of that area that will decide the pattern of the floral arrangement. For instance, while arranging centerpieces for banquet tables, it is better to arrange low and long shapes of flower arrangements, while for round dining tables, oval and low floral arrangements are considered to be apt. Bulky flower arrangements are not suitable for such places, as these disrupt eye contact and hence, communication between the guests. On the other hand, flower arrangements for side tables or the entrance hall should be light and more vertical.

While thinking of how to buy flower arrangements, you should also take into consideration the depth and size and the flower vase or vessel. Ideally, the vase should be a minimum of half the height of the flowers, including the stems. Take a shallow container and fill it with wet floral foam, so as to keep the flowers fresh for a longer time. A floral preservative is easily available with the local florist and you must mix it well with water, before adding the flowers into it.

You can always add a bit of your personal touch to the flower arrangement. Prior to putting the flowers into the vase, you can cut the stems in a new way and clip them at an angle, so as to avoid any air bubbles from getting trapped into the stem. This, in turn, prevents the flowers from getting wilted, thereby, increasing their lifespan.

Further, while planning on how to buy flower arrangements, you should look for colors that complement each other and also complement the décor of the place. The colors you choose will vary on whether you want the flowers to stand out or blend in with the décor. And with so many flowers available in the market, you would surely find something of your taste.

To add an interesting touch to your flower arrangements, you can use a combination of flowers of different textures, such as glossy or matte textures. You should also decide on the arrangement of flowers in various patterns, the popular ones being circular, vertical, triangular, horizontal and fan arrangements. Besides, you can also fill the arrangements with filler flowers and foliage, in order to make the bouquet appear fuller and larger.

Whatever flowers or flower arrangements patterns you choose, the most important thing to be kept in mind while thinking of how to buy flower arrangements, is your personal preferences. There are no fixed rules, just a few guidelines that help make the task a bit easier. Just follow your instincts and choose flower arrangements that please your aesthetic senses, and we bet that you would never ever go wrong.
