About Me: Carol, Your Floral Guide

As a child, I spent afternoons in my grandmother’s garden, fascinated by the vibrant petals and fragrant blooms. I even did not understand that those moments would be the seeds of my future passion. When I got older my dream was to establish Canadian Flower Delivery to bring happiness and beauty to people across the country. From the gentle elegance of tulips to the majestic beauty of roses, my journey as a florist has been a remarkable exploration of the artistry of nature. So, one day my dream came true and I desire to share a fascinating experience with you.

This blog is for flower enthusiasts, offering glimpses into the realm of blossoms, advice on floral design, and ideas to craft breathtaking bouquets. Come alongside me to unveil the secrets of floral language and uncover the enchantment within every bloom!

Harmonizing Your Bouquet

Creating a harmonious bouquet involves thoughtfully combining flowers based on their colors, shapes, sizes, and textures. Here’s a guide to harmonizing a bouquet:

  1. Color Palette: Choose colors that complement the occasion and evoke the desired emotions. Harmonize by combining analogous colors (those next to each other on the color wheel) for a soothing effect or contrasting colors for a vibrant and dynamic bouquet.
  2. Balance and Proportion: Ensure a balance by distributing flowers evenly. Consider the size and proportion of each bloom, placing larger flowers towards the center and smaller ones towards the edges for visual equilibrium.
  3. Texture Variety: Add interest to the bouquet by incorporating a variety of textures. Combine soft, delicate petals with more robust and textured blooms, creating a tactile and visually appealing arrangement.
  4. Focal Point: Choose one or a few standout flowers that draw attention, creating a visual anchor for the arrangement. This can add depth and intrigue to the bouquet.
  5. Shape and Form: Combine different shapes, such as round blossoms with spiky ones or cascading flowers with upright stems, to create a harmonious and dynamic composition.
