8 Simple Steps to Arrange Flowers Like a Pro

Decide on a flower arrangement design

Choose a color palette before buying flowers to guide your arrangement. So when you buy flowers, you know you're getting complementary colors. 

Cut and prepare flowers

When you get home with your flowers, you may want to arrange straight away. However, there are vital actions to prepare and preserve flowers.

Choose a vessel

Moss suggests a weighted vase for tall branches or top-heavy blooms and a straight-sided vase for tulips. 

Prepare your flower vase

One of the most crucial flower arrangement techniques is choosing the right containers. Your arrangement will break apart if the flowers don't have a solid base. 

Create a base with greenery

Greenery is the greatest base for floral arrangement. Ivy, fern, and eucalyptus are fantastic greenery choices. 

Add focal flowers

Focal flowers are frequently huge or unusually colored or textured. Consider adding odd numbers for a more natural look. 

Add filler flowers

Surround the central blooms with lesser flowers and textured embellishments. Again, don't position all supporting flowers vertically or laterally. 

Finish your flower arrangement

Add floaters or fragile flowers like baby's breath, sedum, or yarrow. Put these last to avoid squishing or burying by heavier blooms.
