All tagged complimentary colors
If we're honest, we used to be pretty intimidated by color. It can be so hard to work with color, especially highly contrasting colors. When designing with these types of colors together, such as yellow and purple, it can be hard not to make the designs seem kitschy or too "holiday." Color can quickly cross the line between creative and fun to cheesy and mediocre very fast.

Kelly demonstrates using complimentary colors in a small arrangement using only three ingredients. The ingredients used are Honeysuckle, Chantilly Snapdragons and Ranunculuses in a yellow and purple color scheme. As you’re choosing your ingredients, pay attention to the undertones of the colors in your flowers. This is key in creating a transition piece in your arrangement. Keep the triangular placement pattern in mind to create balance i.e. long piece on one side of the arrangement with a short and medium piece placed on the opposite side. Remember to disperse the colors evenly along with balancing each side to keep the arrangement symmetrical.
