Flower arranging is hard! There is picking the right floral combinations…finding a vase…manipulating the flowers in the right position…and of course prolonging the life of the arrangement!

I really get it, and it is only within the last year or so that I have started to master floral arranging, which is why I’m sharing this video tutorial showing you exactly how I created my autumn floral centerpiece for my fall table!

First step in arranging florals - insert foam in bowl or vase

The video shows you how I built this floral arrangement step by step, and I explain why I make certain design choices. I also share tips and tricks to achieve a beautiful centerpiece.

You don’t have to spend a lot of money to create a beautiful floral centerpiece. All of these flowers came from our local grocery, and the silverplate bowl I bought at a thrift shop.

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!
