Color defines the type of blooms you can and should choose from. Bright yellow and orange call for tulips and daffodils, romantic pinks call for peonies and sweet peas, and deep, rich jewel tones call for roses and hydrangeas.
The color you choose can define the entire look and feel of your event -- try to avoid themes, and remember that a beautiful color palette is more than enough to build a fabulous design scheme.
The arrangement featured hot-pink, magenta, fuchsia, deep-purple and vibrant red tones: anemones, sweet peas, ranunculus, callas, parrot tulips, garden roses, spray roses, nerines, peonies, jasmine, and vine orchids.
