Sorry, I could not resist throwing a little fun into this "Green Themed" blog and don't you just love Kermie anyway? Actually, it is very easy being green at least in the floral design world. Have you ever noticed that when your food arrives to your table at an upscale restaurant their is usually something fresh and green on your plate? Have you ever wondered why they add a sprinkling of fresh herbs on top of certain foods before presenting them? It is because these herbs not only brighten the palate but also liven the color of the food on the plate. Half the experience of eating is the presentation of the food on the plate and how appealing it looks to the eye.
The reason we often add green to our floral designs, is the same reason that chef's add a pop of green on their culinary creations. Adding neutral green adds depth to the design as well making the other colors in the arrangement seem more vibrant. Take the arabicum, berries and hanging amaranthus in this bridal bouquet. above. The colors wouldn't look quite so rich with out those pops of light green.
Now imagine this bouquet without the pops of light green? This bouquet goes from a fall feel to a summer vibe with the addition of some lime green accents.
Green might be the 2013 color of the year but green is always in. It's fresh, vibrant and earthy and let's face it, that's always in style, wouldn't you agree?
