I had the pleasure to create not one, not two, but four tutorial videos for Tesselaar Alstroemeria, a company renowned for its fine-quality flowers. I’m here to share my love for them and hopefully, inspire you to incorporate them more into your designs.
The Tutorials Are About 'Summer Vibes'
I have gained a profound appreciation for the delicate appeal and toughness of alstroemerias via my long expertise as a flower designer. These amazing blooms have a remarkable capacity to simply adapt to various environments and styles. Alstroemerias regularly offer a sophisticated and alluring touch to centerpieces for dining tables as well as the elegance of wedding ceremonies.
Tesselaar Alstroemeria has expertly developed a wide variety of beautiful flowers, each with its own special character and attraction, in the vast world of alstroemerias.
Tutorial 3 - A Summer-Ending Panorama Bouquet
This Alstroemeria Panorama gave me the idea to create a bouquet at the end of summer when vibrant colors gradually give way to deeper shades.
The Reasoning Behind My Video Tutorials
In this series of video tutorials, I have had a mission to showcase the remarkable versatility of these exquisite blooms. Each video unveils a distinct design concept, and I have derived immense joy from exploring various arrangements.
In my perspective, floral design surpasses notions of "right" or "wrong"; it is a form of artistic expression that encourages us to indulge in the pleasure and freedom of self-expression using flowers as our medium.
I will go with you throughout these tutorials, starting with the spring's colorful blooms and ending with the summer's languid goodbye. I will meticulously walk you through each stage of the design process and explain why I chose the materials I did. By watching these instructions, I hope to motivate you to set out on your own floral design adventures and experience the pure joy of working with alstroemerias.
the actual flowers, their life cycles, and the way they coexist peacefully with their environment. Learning about these minute nuances can have a significant impact on your design efforts.
And let us not overlook the fact that floral design encompasses more than just arranging flowers; it involves understanding the flowers themselves, their life cycles, and how they harmoniously interact with their surroundings. Becoming familiar with these subtle details can greatly impact your design endeavors.
