Did you Know.........

Flowers have faces just like we do. A good designer will know how to find the best side of the flower and make sure it is the first side you see when you look at the design. When working with blooms that have a distinct “face” the blooms should all face each other. Just like when you have your picture taken the photographer creates poses that  highlights your best features. The same applies when designing with flowers. For example these cymbidium orchid corsages seem the same, they have the  same bow and the same number of flowers. The only  difference is how they are designed.  In picture #1  the flowers all face each other creating a fuller look and highlights all the blooms.  In picture #2 the flowers are randomly placed and  you can’t see all the blooms at first, making  your eye wonder around  looking for a focal point.  So next time you see a flower see if you can find its "face".
