Our color lessons for today will help us cause excitement…I’ll be creating a complimentary arrangement with my Dramm Tools: The Bypass Cutter and Compact Pruner (in coordinating colors no less!). Complimentary colors are colors that are opposite each other on the color wheel. Complimentary colors cause excitement and today, I’ve chosen blue and orange for this arrangement!
We’ll be creating this arrangement in a Rose Gold Vase from Accent Décor…and it’s important to set the stage for any vase arrangement with Fabulous Foliage from FernTrust. I’m using one of their Green Bouquets which makes it so easy! You chop and drop this professional created bouquet into the vase and you’re ready to start arranging flowers!
We’ll start with blue flowers (the rarest color in the flower world) using Delphinium and Iris from Sun Valley Flower Farms and Veronika from Ocean Breeze Premium Flowers! René and Ivor from Ocean Breeze also grew the Orange Gerbera Daisies and Orange Micro Mini Gerberas we’ll use to represent the orange palette. I also have beautiful orange Lilies from Holland America Flowers- and orange Ranunculus. The orange Carnations from Ayura Pride Eclipse Flowers are beautiful! The final flower is a combination of both orange and blue colors…elegant Bird of Paradise from Kennicott Brothers! I’ll be using lovely transparent copper mesh wired ribbon from Reliant Ribbon… I hope you enjoy this complimentary color lesson!
