Bold Flower Designs- Victorian, Comtemporary, Classic and Casual Easy Living

Large vases hold the roses-very pretty.

The over sized vase can be used for different types of home styles or for wedding decor. A Contemporary Home: Sleek and chic, the modern home calls for clean lines, smooth surfaces and form. Elegant fabrics, colorful silks, gauze or leather accent steel, glass and other man-made materials. Bold, exotic flowers (anthuriums, heliconia, callas, orchids) with strong lines work well to complement this home's clean, open spaces. A Victorian Home: Velvets, satins, chintz, lace and organza create a feeling of softness and romance in the Victorian home. Pastel colors or soft tone-on-tone prints are used to delight the senses. Fragrant flowers (roses, spray roses, peonies, lavender, gardenias, freesia) in pale peach, lavender, pink, yellow and cream conjure images of romance and sensuality. A Casual Easy Living Home: Casual living lifestyles focus on the simple pleasures of life. The decor includes furniture of light pine, natural woods, bleached oak or a white-washed painted finish with fabrics of linen and cotton in neutral tones. Because these homes are designed for "stress busting," flowers provide nature's balancing formula, such as sunflowers, daisies, hydrangea, delphinium or tulips. A Classic Traditional Home: This home has formal architecture with impressive front doors, foyers and individually decorated rooms. Design elements include classic furnishings and antiques with elegant fabrics of brocade, silk and tapestry. Classic arrangements call for a mixture of flowers (roses, gladiola, iris, carnations, lilies or snapdragons, to name a few) and accents such as dried fruit and foliage. I have 3 vases for sale in my eBay store

A hallway entrance to remember!
A monobotanic arrangement of all one type of flower and monochromatic of using all one color palette, such as a range of pinks would be a great design for a wedding.Placing varied leafs in water to display in the home-marvelous!
Have fun with your children in designing what you place in the large vase.
Just as people have their own personalities, so do their homes. I think fresh cut flowers or artificial flowers placed in common areas of the home such as the kitchen, dining room and family room create great mood-boosting effects.
