Oasis Idea Weekly
Start Now: 15 Fabulous Garden and Tropical Flower Arrangements
The hesitation is over.
Floral designers used to hesitate to mix the casual and rounded shapes of garden flowers, known as temperates for the climate where they grow, with the dramatic and angular forms of tropicals.
Today? Temps and trops together are in. Floral trendsetters are embracing this textural new mix in garden design.
And creating gorgeous designs at moderate prices at the same time.
As you look through the 15 arrangements in this week's IDEA Weekly blog, you might wonder why anyone ever paused. Because temps and trops go together like chocolate and peanut butter, bed and breakfast, movies and popcorn, beach and summer and any other magical combination that comes to your mind.
Discover how opposition, proportion and scale matter in mixed designs, the benefits of mixing flowers with different costs and how to handle different stem types in one arrangement—and see the 15 temps and trops mixed arrangements from four different designers. Just click the image above or green button below.
You can also scroll down for this week's floral design video and how to submit your designs with the chance to earn $200 in floral products and be featured in our advertising.
