You can create balance in your home and your life by the type of flower arrangements you place in various areas. If you want to enhance the Water element of feng shui, float a few flowers in a low bowl. The serenity of floating flowers in your field of vision is amazing. Which flowers? Basically, the flatter the flower head, the more float-able it is. Gardenias, Gerber daisies, black eyed Susans, all float very well.
Flower arrangements that are created with several different flowers all the same color are Watery whatever color it is.
