Floral decorations


The floral decorations come to life building the composition from leaves and branches, that is to say the green part. The smaller flowers must be placed first, to allow them to constitute the structure on which the larger flowers will be placed. The composition must be balanced, avoiding putting two identical flowers next to each other, and gradually turning the vase, so as not to risk leaving empty spaces. A very spectacular example of floral decorations is the one allowed by the use of calla lilies, bulbous plants with a particularly pleasant aesthetic impact that can be grown in the open ground or in pots in the garden. They give life to a very particular glass flower, ideal for creating different flower arrangements, centerpieces and even bridal bouquets: it is no coincidence that it is a species often sold as a cut flower. In view of a composition, the calla lilies must be as fresh as possible, so as to last a long time; if they are collected personally, it will be advisable to make a sharp and clean cut on the stem, obliquely, using instruments (scissors or shears) strictly disinfected (there is enough alcohol on a cloth) and with perfectly sharpened blades, so as not to leave fraying. As for the pairings with other flowers, everything obviously depends on the personal tastes and the type of composition you intend to create. It must be said, moreover, that the calla lilies have an important visual effect even on their own, and in particular the white calla lilies are decidedly elegant, which therefore stand out simply if combined with mottled or green leaves.Pairings with ferns, tulips and wild flowers



The combination with ferns is also interesting, but the imagination can also lead to more carefree and whimsical combinations: a really nice idea for the centerpiece is to use white calla lilies together with red roses, which help to create a romantic atmosphere. The advantage of this species, on the other hand, is that it offers different chromatic tones, and therefore always offers different solutions, to combine with poppies, hydrangeas, wild flowers, berries, tulips and so on. It is important that the stem of the flower, elegant and rather long, is highlighted, constituting in all respects a visible element of the decoration. This is why it is preferable to use transparent vases, possibly in glass or crystal: the ideal solution is represented by spherical containers (such as bowls in which the red fish are kept) since they offer the opportunity to position the flowers in a natural way and delicate. The vessel, once filled, should not be placed in hot places: instead, it will be good for a fresh and bright location, as long as it is protected from drafts and drafts. It is absolutely forbidden, in winter, to place the decorations on the radiators: they would face certain death within a few hours. The water must be changed every day, and in summer it can be enriched with some refreshing ice cubes. The stem of the flowers must be shortened by half a centimeter a day, making the cuts as indicated above.

Synthetic musk


In short, it is clear that the floral decorations represent a relief and a joy, and constitute the perfect solution to create an atmosphere of joy in the environments in which they are placed. They can also be made using synthetic moss, to be placed on the bottom of the vase where the flowers must then be placed: it is sufficient to humidify and cut a portion of moss pushing it against the sides, and leaving an empty part so as to be able to add water at the end.
