Did you know that Niagara Falls is actually one of the Seven Wonders of the World? If you’ve ever visited, you’d know why right away judging from the spectacular flow of crystal blue water and hypnotic rush of current.
It’s Amazing, it really is.
Recently, we took a mini family vacation to Ontario, Canada and were able to witness one of Mother Nature’s most impressive creations. We took a boat ride underneath the falls and could literally breath in the pure intoxication of it all, noticing the deep hues of color and the majestic architecture that forms this complicated system of water. It’s no wonder why people travel all over the world to visit Niagara and why it is the one of the most replicated images in both paintings and photographs.
So it got me thinking…
If the attraction has been modeled so popularly within picture media, why cant the flower industry do the same? Floral arrangements can also be inspired by this theme and be used in a wide array of projects including bouquets, bridal and funeral work. Designers would be able to focus upon utilizing product that are capable of being made into archways as well as blooms that either carry some shade of the blue and white spectrum. Entire weddings could be morphed into a scene reflective of Niagara Falls just by implementing the right blossoms and stems into the floral framework.
