Contemporary, Metropolitan, and Traditional Flower Designs

feb19lb4Not everyone has the same taste and that even holds true when it comes to flower varieties and flower arrangements. That’s why we offer every type of flower design imaginable – from traditional and contemporary to metropolitan and avant garde.

Defining Contemporary and Metropolitan

When it comes to contemporary and metropolitan, these are sophisticated designs that say more with less. Some are minimalist in design in order to let the unique flowers say it all, especially when using irises or orchids as well as tropical flower varieties.feb19lb3

Other contemporary designs use big and bold colors to create a dramatic effect. These may be deep orange, crimson, and purple flowers, which provide the most impact to the viewer. That’s not to say that a contemporary design can’t be monochromatic with white on white flowers to create a sophisticated statement.

These types of arrangements are great as décor for an office or in a modern home setting. Contemporary and metropolitan floral designs are also a great idea for an event, including a wedding or special occasion. Plus, they also make great gifts for recipients that like the modern design flair.

Traditional Flower Arrangements Can Still be Unique

That’s not to say that traditional floral designs have to be dull or visually uninspiring. They can be anything but, offering a unique look but relying on traditional flower choices, arrangement styles, and containers.feb19lb2

Traditional flowers tend to offer roses, hydrangea, carnations and tulips. However, these can still be arranged in an interesting way that stands out from that every day floral design.

This can include lining the containers with leaves or using branches and other unique greenery to show off the stunning flowers. Additionally ribbons or baskets provide a way to present a more traditional approach to floral designs.

These traditional flower arrangements can also work in homes and offices as well as for events and weddings and for recipients that prefer these flower varieties.

You Tell Us

Our floral design team does more than just create our collections each season; they are also here to work with you directly on custom floral designs that may not necessarily fit any particular design category or style but uniquely represent who you are or the person you are giving the flowers to.feb19lb1

Let us know what you want and how much you want to spend, and our floral design team will show you that anything is possible.
