Dried flowers | Flower arranging for Christmas by Max Hurtaud

Dried flowers: arranging flowers for Christmas (by Max Hurtaud)

Dried flowers is the interior trend of today, which you probably have noticed. Flower arrangements are constantly changing over time and we, florists, have to keep developing ourselves, keep training ourselves, keep each other sharp and so much more!

Remember… In the eighties the flower arrangements were full of flowers and leaves. The work was very heavy, greedy, quite classical and above all symmetrical.

This was an expression of floral art with a natural tendency, without creating structures or other expressions.

This evolution changed in the 2000s. Flower art turned into floral decoration and everything was almost possible!

With a more contemporary spirit, we used glass vases, colored aluminum wire, jelly balls, Oasis Rainbow foam (you know, the foam of different colors and in different shapes) and even more and more structures were crazed - the sky was the limit).

He started his journey in flower arrangements at the age of 17, when he was educated at the Catalan schools of flower arrangements. Since then he has trained at seminars with internationally renowned teachers. In 2018 he won the Spanish Cup.

Carles herself has also taught at workshops, seminars and demonstrations in Greece, Romania, France, England, the Netherlands, Scotland, Germany, Uruguay, China, Russia, Belgium, the United States, Spain and Catalonia. Today he has two flower shops, where he works on all kinds of flower decorations.
