Rick Rifle: Hi everybody I’m Rick Rifle from stylishlife.com with flower arrangements they’ve shapes and how sometimes form does follow function we want spaces. We all love fresh flowers in our house from the right counter is that often times people don’t really understand how the shape of the base impacts the arrangement that you put it in. I gather the other a few different assorted pieces that were represent the bulk of the shapes and sizes that I have in my house. I wanted to start with something I think all of this have, the tall, clear, glass, and cylinder. It also container I think that is frequently miss use, the tall of glass cylinder has a very structural quality on it, it’s actually kind of modern. So, what I think you want to do is use things that also a raise structural quality about them in this case I use fussy willow. You know a little design or tip here you got to change this water everyday because trust me otherwise it going to look like you got a science project grown on your sideboard. Another really common kind of receptacle if you see people putting flowers in is a ordinary household picture that is a nice country look to it, a very casual filling you can put it on the sideboard, you can put it in the dining room and you can throw in the kitchen for some work. The problem with the simple picture is that it’s got that a sort of strength shape and spilled on it and you can’t really do anything traditional or conventional inside of it so I go over things like pair of tulips. Now, why tulips? Tulips have a really sloppy casual filling about them, they always kind of flopping over and hanging down when you put them in something it has a really sculptural net quality like picture they tend to sort of created they’re own sort of landscape by just flopping wherever they will and taking on the properties of the container that’s why they seem to work best for common ordinary household picture. Now a little designer trick for in the tulips, if you don’t want to be quite and sloppy and quite lazy throws a penny into the water. What’s left of the amount in copper in the ordinary American penny will have a chemical reaction with water and cause the flower to straight enough. Another really common base that everybody seems to have is the bad base. Now I’ve done bad base which is just a single flower and what I find is it’s just looks lonely so what I’ve taken to main is taking two flowers one thing sure than the other in creating an ace symmetrical arrangement. Gives a little dynamic attention and actually makes it look a little bit more interesting. I also like to use ordinary everyday household butchers like coffee mugs, tiny mugs or a little French on soup bowl. Now what I find nice about this types of containers is they give you a really low almost personal and some with sort of arrangement perfect for our bedside table, powder room and quite honestly you can find the flower that really doesn’t have a lot of fragrance we all know this rule a centerpiece on the dining room table, lower arrangement are great on dining room tables because that will you a dinner guest with the table in front of you. Another type of container I used frequently that I think a lot of people might overlook is just a low open dish, I filled it water and then I just float blossom some. The types of flowers that I frequently float in there will be things like orchids or this little pink blossoms that I cut off in every bosh behind my house. It will also seduce something like a gardenia if you wanted although you want to use on the dining room table I would say stay on way for things that have strong scents.
