To be honest, finding your floral style can feel overwhelming. In fact, it can be downright intimidating if you don't experience with flowers. You know what? There's good news everybody! You don't have to be a master of flower art or even start from scratch.
For me as a fine art designer (and I feel like most everyone else is the same), I am more interested in interpreting you and cultivating a one of a kind, couture floral composition that's all you. I want to create flowers that represent you better than you have the ability to create. As a painter uses oils, I use fresh branches, berries, plants, flowers as my medium. When you look for inspiration, I recommend looking at things you already love - fashion lines, blogs, magazine and other styles and places. Your style is already there!
One of the best places to find honest intentional inspo for your own bloom-board is photographer's website posts of real events. Is there a better way to see what flowers are available at one time and exactly what they will look like after a long day in summer sun? That's REAL, you guys. An excerpt from one of my spring-time favorites with Whitewood Events is below. From the Certified American Grown Flowers alaskan peonies to the Rosaprima garden roses, clematis, gardenia and snapdragons snipped right from the mother's garden, you're going to see what May blooms are ALL about!
