Tips & Tricks to Remember When Arranging Flowers
No. 1 Always re-cut stems at a diagonal.
No. 2 Make sure your floral foam is completely wet all the way through the block.
No. 3 Cut away bottom foliage on stem to insert into foam and keep those leaves from decaying in water.
No. 4 Create a floral foundation using textural flowers and greenery to support larger more colorful flowers.
No. 5 Make the height of your centerpiece double the height of its container.
No. 6 Use a mix of florals to add color, shape, and texture.
No. 7 Allow space in-between florals and greenery so arrangement doesn’t look too compact and ball like.
No. 8 Use filler flower in contrasting and complementary colors to highlight main flowers.
No. 9 Don’t be afraid to gently manipulate flower stems and leaves to position them.
No. 10 It always takes more flowers than you think you need to make a large lush autumn floral centerpiece!
