Sometimes, the old classics are best. You just can't beat the classy traditional look of a bunch of pretty green and pink carnations in a gorgeous, cut crystal vase. I like using clear crystal vases in floral designs where I want the flowers to be the focal point. The clear vase adds height, texture and structure, yet seems to fade away in the background.
I like to blend various colors of the same flower in my arrangements as it seems to make the colors pop since they have the same tonal value in color complemented by identical textures. Its a pretty easy way to create your own floral arrangements that look nice and sophisticated.
