Andrea Perrone of Tarrytown-based Adonia Floral Design shares tips on how to create an eye-catching arrangement.
Almost two decades ago, Andrea Perrone spontaneously signed up for a floral design course at her neighborhood flower shop. “During the workshop, I was immediately brought back to my memories of making humble little flower bouquets for my mother and my favorite teachers. spring with the most beautiful flowers. I have always admired their beauty and had a connection with flowers from an early age.
Perrone has since established her own floral business at Tarrytown-based Adonia Floral Design, specializing in natural, unstructured, spontaneous and garden-inspired bouquets.
“I never imagined a career in floristry,” she admits, “but the feeling of excitement and longing to create something with my hands never left me.”
Of creating a beautiful seasonal arrangement, Perrone says, “The summer season brings an abundance of blooms, so creating a pretty arrangement in a snap is effortless.”
Here are some pro tips from Perrone for creating long-lasting summer blooms:
- Keep flowers out of direct sunlight. The heat will cause the stems to wilt.
- Place flowers away from fruit; the ethylene gases released by the fruit will cause the flowers to decay.
- In the evening, place your flowers to rest in the coolest part of your house.
- Recycle an empty spray bottle by washing it thoroughly and filling it with clean water. Lightly mist your flowers once a day or when the weather is particularly hot. Flowers like to stay hydrated.
