The outside in arrangement: This style uses glass to show off flowers as if they are in a museum case. Flowers are placed inside a vase with the tops aligned near the upper rim of the vase.

Repeating performance: This flower arrangement requires three or more of the same type of container. Each container then has one or more identical flowers, showing off the singular shape of the particular flower. Looks good on a table or a window sill. How many containers and how many flowers? Anything goes as long as it is continuous. Single colour concept: This is arrangement of flowers that uses one colour in a mix of either the same kind of flower. Usually flowers are densely packed together and often in a container.

Boxed in: Flowers tightly packed into a square or oblong shaped container is currently a very popular choice. Topsy turvy: Traditional design dictates that flowers arranged in a vase are in the following ratio: 1/3 vase and 2/3 flowers sticking out the top. This trend flips this around. In this flower arrangement the vase occupies the lower 2/3 of the arrangement and the flowers just crest over the top rim. Unearthed: One fun trend is to display bulb flowers such as tulips, hyacinths or amaryllis as complete units with the flower and stem still attached to the bulb and roots. The effect is reminiscent of historical botanical drawings. Whatever your style, the most important thing to look out for when buying flowers is to choose something you like.
