Oasis ideas for Valentines


Smithers-Oasis North America Design Director Sharon McGukin, AIFD, AAF, PFCI, is a speaker and author known for her "edutaining" floral design tips and Southern charm. She has four decades of design experience, is past president of AIFD and lives in Carrollton, Georgia. 

When I owned my flower shop, I spent a lot of time planning and preparing to galvanize Valentine's Day sales. I was always searching for interesting ways to capture the attention of my customers. I found that featuring new trends was my best bet. 

How can you inspire your clientele to fall in love with your 2016 Valentine's Day Collection? Try showcasing heartwarming designs featuring these trendy new looks. From elegant and artistic to fun and funky, these floral trends are sure to win a cupid's heart. 

For this Valentine's Day, the OASIS Floral Products design team created Pop-Art, Renaissance, Impressionism and Art Deco inspired designs. You can see the designs and recipes here. And you can watch the videos explaining each set by clicking on the video images below.

Impressionism
Inspired by fine photos and art gallery impressions, this look appeals to the finer senses with floral finesse. Textural detail is important and bright colors preferred, but remember to soften the look with the soft, smooth lines of loosely gathered flowers. Add interest by accessorizing with the fine detail of Beaded Wire or metallic floral wire.

Art Deco
Create floral works of art for your clientele this Valentine's Day. The Art Deco 1920's - 30's era ushered in the age of playfulness. To mimic this style, blend an energetic mix of architectural detail with geometric form using decorative wire. Add natural motifs and a touch of glamour. Design Valentine flower arrangements in ESSENTIALS containers that celebrate the fun, fanciful, yet functional style of Art Deco.

Pop Art
Everything old is new again as our Pop Art trend revisits the 60's. Bright. Bold. Funky. Abstract. Think Andy Warhol. Dynamic lines add drama. Static lines add visual strength. You can easily incorporate both using the versatility of colorful and malleable Midollino Sticks.High energy and enthusiasm for life are elements of this collection. Keep your holiday color palette in step using the eye-catching array of colors available with Colour Regen floral color spray.

Renaissance
Celebrate the artistic age of the Renaissance with the romantic look of Valentine's Day flowers in deep, rich, glorious color. Mix the natural elements of fruit with flowers in a classic design that highlights texture and form. Incorporate flat wire for the glow of an unexpected sheen.
Lush. Luscious. Lovely.
However you describe them, the style and grace of these sumptuous designs can easily warm a loved one's heart. 
Have fun creating stunning new floral designs for your clientele this Valentine's Day with cherished styles from the past. 

Which style is your favorite?
