A Dozen Roses-Two Ways . . .
The container can change the arrangement.
When choosing a container, the type of arrangement being created is important. Each arrangement contains one dozen roses, silver dollar eucalyptus, and limonium. Each arrangement is made to fit the vase!
An old rule of thumb for design is: One and a half times the height of the vase. This is a true rule. Imagine reversing the blooms in the vases. The tall stems in the bubble vase and the blooms in the rose vase. It is not a pretty sight!
The stems in the bubble vase would keep falling. The stems would not have the support of the vase to hold the blooms. Also, the blooms would not last long because there would not be enough water in the vase.
The blooms in the tall vase would look like they have no neck! It is surprising that the eye has expectations. The eye expects a tall building, but is stopped too soon by the missing stems.
These designs enhance the blooms and the container. The bubble vase allows the blooms to fully fill the space. The tall vase shows off the beauty of the rose stem and leaves, and creates a framework for the blooms. This is a true rule!
