Floral Arranging Tips

  • Main Rules: Balance, proportion & scale, unity, harmony, rhythm & balance, and emphasis.
  • Choose your Color Palette – What are your favorite colors? What colors represent your personality? What is the interior tone of your home? Are you into bright, pastel, or neutral colors? These questions can guide you toward your ideal floral arrangement design. Additionally, it’s important to choose colors that complement one another. Say you’re into a pink color scheme, try arranging your florals with baby pink, salmon, flamingo pink, and magenta.
  • Cut & Prepare – After arriving home with your flowers, you may be tempted to begin arranging right away. However, it’s important to first remove extra leaves and damaged petals from stems. Once the stems are cleaned up, make a cut to the bottom of the stems. Preparation ensures to keep your flowers stay fresh and last longer.
  • Choose & Prepare your Vase – Pick your vase based on the length and the number of floral bundles you have. Recommended vases: Tall cylinder glass vases, Narrow necked glass vases, Fishbowl vases, Square glass vases, Rectangular glass vases, and Square tank glass vases.
  • Add a Greenery Base – We highly recommend Eucalyptus leaves!
  • Focal Flowers – Usually the largest blooms that are bright in color.
  • Filler Flowers – These are the smaller and daintier flowers like Daisies.
  • Add Contrast & Pop of Color – If your floral color tones are pink, add a pop of color like white.
