Use Harmony and Contrast When Arranging Flowers

If you're wondering how to arrange flowers, a great place to start is by understanding harmony and contrast. These two elements are used together to create unity within an arrangement as well as to help it work with its surroundings. The two work as follows:

  • Harmony: is when the arrangement compliments its surroundings by being similar in a way that makes it seem to belong. This is achieved when elements of the surroundings exist within the arrangement (like similar colors or textures).
  • Contrast: is created when the arrangement uses elements that are different enough from the surroundings that it won't blend in completely—it needs to stand out to be noticed.
