A floral arrangement is a simple, yet impactful way to tell someone that you value them or that they are in your thoughts this holiday season. They’re also a wonderful way to decorate your own home in celebration of Christmas. But unless you’re a floral specialist, it can be quite difficult to determine whether a flower arrangement you’re planning to send to a friend or loved one is actually worth paying for. Luckily, a high quality professional florist at The Delicate Daisy – House of Flowers will always be on hand to help you select an arrangement that is both awe inspiring and resilient enough to survive for days.
To get you started, here are four tips from our staff to help you select the perfect floral arrangements in San Francisco, CA:
- Flowers facing outwards: Unfortunately, many florists tend to think upwards when designing an arrangement. However, this common mistake can drastically decrease the visible beauty of the arrangement from all angles. Select an arrangement that has some large blooms facing outwards throughout the bundle so your guests will always have something beautiful to gaze upon, regardless of the direction from which they’re viewing it.
- Strong foundation: Any piece of artistic work needs a strong foundation in order to support it. The same is true for floral arrangements. A high quality arrangement should always be supported by a distinctive, yet durable vase, as well as a solid selection of greenery that cradles the blooms. This way, your flowers will still stand tall even after a few days on display.
- Fresh: It doesn’t matter how expensive or rare the flowers are if they don’t look fresh. Never settle for an arrangement that doesn’t pass the freshness test. The flowers should appear as though they were cut recently enough to remain standing tall over multiple days with the help of fresh water. This amount of time can be increased by using the free packet of flower food included with any arrangement.
- High quality filler: Chances are, you’ve probably seen a cheap bouquet at the grocery store where the flowers are overwhelmed with boring baby’s breath or look underwhelming next to the skimpy greenery. Never opt for one of these arrangements. While the focus might be on the flowers, the filler also plays an important role in building a beautiful arrangement. Always opt for a selection that has an ample amount of fresh filler without overwhelming the main portion of the arrangement.
