Petals are a wonderful material for an original and stylish bouquet. Garlands of live rose petals give the bouquet perfect lines, movement, liveliness, and special charm.     Another argument in favor of such an original bouquet is the relatively low cost of rose petals. And I dare to assure you - such elements of the bouquet will not be superfluous if it is intended for a photo shoot! Your decor looks richer, more spectacular, more romantic, choosing from "Love" and "Passion", and then, no doubt, definitely "Passion".

The Seductress

At first glance, the image of a seductress fascinates, she seems unapproachable, which in itself attracts, but at the same time, one can feel some promiscuity and a desire for new acquaintances. The bouquet is assembled from soft pink roses with the addition of burgundy. The new variety of florinca Noa is almost invisible, but it is he who gives the shade of crimson color. And in the end, the almost black phalaenopsis orchid takes the gaze quite a bit to the center. Black feathers and dyed coral fern hide the brilliance of the hues around the edges of the bouquet. Wonderful black dresses to the floor, bordered with a red thread of petals with light openwork ribbons - the hallmark of this image.     Rose Petals Are the Secret Keepers of Romantic Confessions Seduction by Peter Anokhin   Don't rush to throw away the rose petals.

A Boat With Rose Petals

What girl doesn't dream of a romantic photo shoot in a boat decorated with flowers? Red is the color of love. It is not easy to convey the shades of red correctly, and no matter how it goes, it does not merge into one common mass. In large works, additional colors are needed to help make out the details of the main tone. The whole structure was based on the twisting willow branches painted in black. Scourges of golden hops and light fluffs of clematis serve as a backdrop for a red palette of roses, carnations, dahlias. Dirty pink alstroemeria Ballet is in harmony with the skin tone of the models. A very small number of Princess asters add crimson depth. Garlands of live and dry rose petals Black Magic produces a variety of reds with a black tint. A model in a velvet dress is the best solution. We can only hope that our heroes will be happy.     Rose Petals Are the Secret Keepers of Romantic Confessions Boat by Peter Anokhin   Did you like it?

I was born and raised in Kyrgyzstan. My hometown is located on the shores of a very beautiful mountain lake Issyk-Kul. Have you ever wondered at what point in the development of civilization people began to tame wild plants as entertainment, enjoying their ephemeral beauty? My history of relationship with plants began very early, at about 6 years old. At this early age I was already interested in the topic of the history of varieties and species, and the diversity of the flower & plant world. Plants, like humans, have their own past, present and future.
