Have you ever attended a dinner party and the table centerpiece was so strongly scented that every dish tasted like the flowers, or worse – the party guests got sick by the strong scents of gardenias or lilies in a small or hot room?
Most flowers have a smell. It is important to keep the scent of flowers in mind when you are making arrangements. I have heard stories about flowers and entertaining where strongly scented blooms have created a stir of the unpleasant kind and really put a damper on the event.
One thing you can do to dissipate (get rid of) the smell of flowers is by spraying them with FEBREEZ - a wonderful air freshner which you can buy at your local grocery store, Wall Mart or supermarket.
Check water levels frequently Think of your flower arrangements like pets. They need fresh water daily too.
You don’t have to be a designer to create a work of art. Remember the old saying that “beauty is in the eye of the beholder?” Each of us has a different style and taste when it comes to “art.” My rule of thumb is that if you like the arrangement, and it makes you happy, it is indeed a work of art.
