Debra Prinzing has put together a charming video on color theory and bouquet building. Debra says, “For DIY-designers and beginners, it's an easy guide to get started. Sometimes when you are at the flower stand or even walking through the garden, the choices are certainly beautiful but also overwhelming. The Color Wheel ideas help organize your design process. You'll be able to create harmonious, eye-pleasing floral arrangements, centerpieces, and bouquets with a fun, paint-by-number approach.”
Watch this five-minute lesson video that tags classic primary and secondary color rules to inspire and really simplify the art of designing a bouquet: Informative – and lovely.
