How do you achieve that perfect, florist style flower arrangement on a DIY budget? Regardless of whether this is your first arrangement or you’ve done it before, we’ve got a few tips to help you create the exact bouquet you want. This article will help you understand what works well when it comes to flower arrangement, and how to go about making the perfect bunch of blooms.
Basic principles of flower composition
- Vary the patterns, textures, and colours of the plants to create harmony through distinction
- Texture can be added with wispy, airy fronds breaking up the boldness of flowers such as hydrangeas or dahlias
- Play with colour effects by using contrasting colours, complementary colours, or varying shades of the same colour
- When creating your arrangement, add the larger, bolder flowers first, and then fill in the space with smaller, more delicate blooms and airy, wispy, fronds.
