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'
Through my extensive experience as a flower designer, I have developed a deep admiration for the exquisite charm and resilience of alstroemerias. These extraordinary flowers possess a remarkable ability to effortlessly adjust to different settings and design aesthetics. Alstroemerias consistently infuse dining table centerpieces with sophistication and allure, while also adding an elegant touch to 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 4 - The Dark Pink Arrangement
This darker piece heralds the change of seasons. The firm stems of the pink Alstroemeria will surprise you in this round arrangement with wool and Typha sticks and contrasting green anthuriums.
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.
From my perspective, floral design transcends the notions of "right" or "wrong." It is an artistic form of expression that encourages us to revel in the pleasure and freedom of self-expression, utilizing flowers as our medium.
Throughout these tutorials, I will accompany you on a journey that begins with the vibrant blooms of spring and concludes with the nostalgic farewell of summer. I will guide you meticulously through each stage of the design process, offering explanations for the materials I have chosen. By observing these instructions, my intention is to inspire you to embark on your own floral design adventures and discover the sheer delight of working with alstroemerias.
Let us not overlook the fact that floral design encompasses more than mere flower arrangements. It entails comprehending the actual flowers themselves, their life cycles, and how they peacefully coexist with their environment. Acquiring knowledge about these subtle nuances can profoundly impact your design pursuits.
