Flower arrangement is a tricky business. You need to be good with your hands, have an eye for detail and above all you need to understand how what are effective combinations of flowers. They make it look so easy but watching someone else do it is never the same as trying it yourself.
If you do manage to immerse yourself in the art of office flowers Melbourne, you may find that it is a soothing past-time that you didn’t think was possible. Maybe you’ve seen instances of the action on TV shows or movies set in periods where feudal wars were rampant but the visual is vivid. Ademure, soft-spoken woman sitting outside, tending to her beloved flora with the care and caution that hides from the rough and violent times she lived in. A picture of contrast so stark it tugs at you in a way you couldn’t imagine. Maybe you don’t understand the significance but the image is still there.
Then again, in modern times that doesn’t matter too much. What does matter is what joys it could give you in the present. Perhaps after during a rough day at work, you come home to an empty apartment or house. You could have a meal, watch some television or read a book. Alternatively, you could step out onto the balcony or the backyard and find the half-finished project of marigolds, pansies and sunflowers you’d kept on hold for quieter times. The time is right to finish it.
Minutes, hours pass as you tend delicately to your work of art, deciding meticulouslywhat sort of presentation you wish to create, the message you want to convey. There’s more to flower arranging than simply plucking out random flowers from next door’s garden and haphazardly dropping them into vases. What combinations of colours do you think will complement each other? Will a variation of sizes be too contradictory or can you find something deeper than the surface that you could work with? If you’ve got flowers of similar hues as mentioned previously, which ones stand out and may detract attention from those just as deserving?
So you work your fingers to the bone, eyes squinting and forehead sweating from concentrating. It’s past dinner time and you’re still outside under the dim light of a lamp and the mysterious light of the moon. Maybe you’ve been a tad careless and gotten pricked so your fingers are hidden under bandages but your endeavour hasn’t wavered. You need this to be perfect so you’ve set aside your entire night to complete your work, your masterpiece. Until, finally, you manage the last adjustment that makes the arrangement so perfect you couldn’t believe you made it.
You present it next day to your significant other and the expression of sheer joy shining on her face makes it worth it.
