Victorian - If you find your home boasting a style that can be associated with the style used in the Victorian era, which dates from about 1840 to 1900, then you certainly need to think about a flower arrangement and decoration that will fit to this style. Luckily, there are a lot of ideas available to help you match your flower decoration with the style of your home.

Here are some of the worth-considering ideas available:

• Satins, velvets, lace, chintz, and organza create a feeling of softness and romance in the Victorian home.

• Pastel colors and soft-tone-on-tone prints can be used to gratify the senses.

• Roses, spray roses, lavender, gardenias, freesia, peonies and other fragrant flowers that come in colors like pale, peach, lavender, yellow, cream, and pink have the ability to invoke a feeling and images of sensuality and romance.

According to some experts, all of such mentioned colors and combinations are perfect when placed in vases or containers that are romantic and lovely in style. For added effects, it would be best if you’ll use vases of clear glass, silver and crystal.
