The super power of flower bouquets is to brighten up the mood of any room in the blink of an eye. Made from dried flowers, you can enjoy the sight for much longer, and they don't need water to change, and you don't have to update the stems by cutting them. Of course, we love them so much not primarily because of their easy handling, but because of their fragile aesthetics, the Printa store is often decorated with a bouquet or two. You can also take home finished compositions, but if you have time and you even feel like it, then give it a chance, because it is an endlessly meditative and fun process!
It's no secret that Zita Majoros, the designer at Printa, has an insatiable passion for dried flowers, so we asked her to make three bouquets and share her tips with us. Although he claims to be an amateur in the field, we strongly doubt this claim after seeing his bouquet.
Where do you get dried flowers?
"Some of the dried flowers shown in the pictures were picked in Felsőörs in the summer, and the rest I got at the flower market and from Arbonika. During walks - preferably in spring and summer - it is always worth walking with your eyes open, because they are beautiful you can find plants that you can then dry at home." - Zita Majoros
The first is a classic, eclectic bouquet, during the preparation of which you have to strive for a pleasant asymmetry on both sides. Feel free to leave some stems longer so that they get more attention and make the overall look more exciting!
Zita was inspired by the rich canopies in this composition, the bouquet is sprawling and dense, it immediately catches the eye. The whole is covered almost exclusively by white salt flowers, which creates the optical illusion of a fine layer of snow sitting on it.
This bouquet is a combination of two readily available dried flowers, reed and yarrow. In this variation, the essence of the bouquet is given by the different dimensions, so we encourage you to leave some stems unreasonably long and compose an oversized bouquet in a small vase!
We hope Zita's tips will be useful to you, and we've got you in the mood for tying bouquets!
