How To Make Any Vase Arrangement Into A Halloween Floral Design!!!

Hi from Rittners Floral School in Boston. Everyone enjoys Halloween. It is a wonderful holiday for both adults and kids. Originally it was a very intense holiday. It marked the Celtic festival of Samhain, a time of the year in which it was believed that there was a portal from the world of the living to the world of the dead. The seriousness has moderated in present times. In past decades Halloween was considered a “kids” holiday, primarily centered around trick or treating... More recently adults have started to enjoy it as well for parties and socializing.... Flowers and floral designs can really contribute to creating an atmosphere and setting for this holiday... Floral decorations can be created that fit the spirit of the holiday yet make one’s home even more attractive.... Yes there are some very specific arrangements that say “Halloween.” Rittners School of Floral Design www.floralschool.com!

But there are also some very quick and easy tricks that you can use to turn just about any vase arrangement into a Halloween treat....We present some of those tricks here. At Rittners Floral School, we believe in teaching folks how to make floral designing quick and easy.... This short ebook treat of floral art tricks is created with that in mind...Enjoy! !

Colors For a mild Halloween treatment, let’s first consider the choice of colors for the arrangement. The use of fall colors, oranges, yellows, reds, etc. automatically makes this vase arrangement appropriate for this time of year...... Obviously altering the colors of this design differently could also make it more seasonally appropriate for Christmas, spring, etc..... The major point is that with the color palette illustrated in this photo, the design as shown here is quite appropriate for Halloween.....

Halloween Creepy Crawlers !!!! Want to add an additional level of Halloween Fun?? Consider getting some of the various artificial Halloween bug accessories that are easily found in outlets during the fall season. Plastic/rubber spiders, and all kinds of gross but inexpensive toy creepy crawlers are easily found at a huge range of outlets from early fall right up to the holiday! These can be placed loosely on your florals for easy removal in case family members get grossed out...

As with all of our florals, do keep your Halloween floral designs away from small kids and pets.....

Or they can be secured with glue... Rittners School of Floral Design www.floralschool.com!

Start on one side of the arrangement and gradually.....

The trick is to pull it thin enough so that you can see the florals underneath, but still have the feeling of authentic cobwebs.......It is kind of a balancing act, but easily achieved....

On the other hand, we could combine the cobweb effect with the spiders to create something that definitely says “Happy Halloween.�
