Every year there are a new varieties of roses and several new colors. Many roses come with thorns so be very careful when removing them because the pain is unpleasant if you get hurt.

One of my favorite roses is the garden rose for its aroma and the distinctive beauty of the heat of the flower. Garden roses cost more than the regular rose, and it is worth it because your arrangements will look more romantic and luxe.

Standard roses are the most popular for weddings because of the size of their head that are not too big. There is also sweetheart rose. Sweetheart Roses are smaller and come on individual stems.

While the spray rose is small as the sweetheart, it has a few flowers within the same stem. When designing with roses, you have a great choice of colors, sizes, and aromas.

I like to mix garden roses, standard, and mini roses within my floral designs and the bridal bouquet because it gives texture and adds more interest.

Hydrangeas are best known for their size and care. These flowers bloom in spring, summer, and early fall. The Hydrangea is a very thirsty flower. This flower needs lots of care to last.

Many florists and designers are fearful of working with hydrangeas because they experienced the flower wilting before the day of the event. This happens because they did not know how to care and handle this flower.

Once you get to know the preferences of the hydrangea, then it becomes the best flower to work with. This is true especially if you have a low budget, because just a few hydrangeas are needed in a vase to make a cute centerpiece.
