Understanding Flower Arranging

If you're ready to dive into the waters of fresh flower arranging, it's important that you understand the placement guidelines. You can't just stick flowers wherever you'd like, there is an art to placing the materials. Here are some rules to adhere to:

  • The largest and darkest flowers are usually placed close to the base of the design.
  • The smallest and lightest flowers are generally placed at the outer edges of the arrangements.
  • In symmetrical arrangements, flowers should be spaced evenly throughout the arrangement.
  • In asymmetrical arrangements the materials should be placed in a way that visual weight is distributed evenly throughout the display.
