A mine of flower design ideas at TryFlowers.org.uk


Flower arrangements from TryFlowers.org.uk

While I was flipping over the pages of a previous edition of Living etc magazine, my eyes cut a fascinating ad sponsored by the Flowers & Plants Association.

Intrigued, I went right away to TryFlowers.org.uk, the “So simple. So try it.” campaign Web site. My expectations were high. I am not disappointed by what I seen. The navigation of the site is a little bit archaic but the content is fresh and practical. It is a must see online destination for DIY people that like to host parties.

You will learn how to keep cut flowers longer and more. The most exciting feature is definitely the flower bouquet guide. You select a style. Then you see 9 gorgeous flower arrangements with the proper instructions on how to make yourself these stylish creations. Anyone with a little bit of artistic flair and dexterity can do it.

Before you get ready for your next party, take a look at their creations for inspirations. Then go to the flower shop or the farmer market to pick up the flowers you need. Like they say on their Web site, you might surprise yourself and your mates.

The Flowers & Plants Association was formed in 1984 to promote all commercially grown cut flowers and indoor plants in United Kingdom. I think they do a good marketing job with the So simple. So try it.” campaign.

    April, check out the Clean Whites and Calming Neutrals section on the TryFlowers,org web site. They did a classic arrangement by taking 5 glossy, green anthuriums that they team with 2 stems of pure white lilies. Add yellow gerberas and set it all in a black and white vase.
