ART OF ARRANGING FLOWERS
Flower arrangement is a delight
ful pastime hich lends a decorative
note to the home few inanimate
things can imitate. And it is not a
difficult art to master if one will fol
low the few general principles which
really matter. One of these is bal
ance. Balance means that the
weight on each side of an axis is
equal, as in the case of a playground
see-saw, when two cbilden of equal
weight balance each other on the
In case of flower arrangement, the
tame principle is observed, using the
container as the axis, instead of the
sawhorse on the see-saw.
There are different ways of cre
ating balance. First we can put an
equ&l number of blossoms of about
the same size on each side of the
vase. Second, we can attempt to com
pensate a larger number on one side,
by placing longer blossoms on the
other. The illustration of the see
saw is again in point, as we remem
ber that a heavier ?ierson on one
end must give way a little more board
to the lighter one on the other end.
It is also possible to make what
appears to be a balance of weight,
by a careful choice of colors. In the
illustration, light and dark roses and
delphiniums are used. You will note,
however, that both number and
length fo the blooms cu the right side
far surpass those on the left, and
should in principle outweigh them.
Yet, the whole is pleasing. Why?
Because the roses on the left are ex
tremely dark in color, and color in
design always gives the impression
of weight. Keep these three prin
ciples of balance in mind when mak
ing arrangements; they will help ycu
get more enjoyment from your flow
