Floral Designer Quotes - Judith Blacklock 3/8/2012

Where should I begin my flower arrangement?

"Before you start, really think about where you want to position your flowers and the mood you're trying to evoke. If it's a grand room with high ceilings, a lone rose in a slender bottle will be swamped; while a huge stone urn with billowing hydrangeas and foliage would overpower a table laid for a simple lunch. This may sound obvious, but one of the most common mistakes is to ignore scale and proportion. "
