Green

What does the color green symbolize?

According to google green is the color of nature. It symbolizes growth, harmony, freshness, and fertility. Green has a strong emotional correspondence with safety. The color wheel pro says that green has healing power. It is the most restful color to the human eye; it can improve vision. Green suggests stability and endurance.

In the floral world green is essential to most designs. There is nothing like a few sprigs or stems of a well-placed type of greenery to enhance and set your artistic piece off to the human eye. If you’re anything like me, greenery is one of the absolute staples to design with as you’ll see featured below in this “green” themed photo shoot!

When you just have to scavenge and add branches into the photo for that little extra bit of texture and color. Isn’t it a fun and different touch!?
Who wouldn’t like this combo as a centerpiece for their coffee table?

What kind of greenery is your favorite to design with? I want to encourage you wherever you are to bring that freshness, growth and peace into your customers and families life in any way you can. We have such an opportunity as floral artists!

Can anyone guess what color the next photo shoot will be?
