Step-by-step guide to arranging flowers like a pro

As you walk the rose aisle or appreciate the intoxicating scent of lilies, you will realize that each flower offers its own unique experience. Flawlessly combining these different bundles of joy and beauty is nothing short of an art.

Entering beyond the flower shops Londonwe see rows of beautiful flower bouquets that tell a different story about themselves and remind us of special people. You can also create bouquets, vases and flower arrangements that will attract the attention of the viewer and convey their aesthetic beauty.

Here you will find a simple guide to arranging flowers step by step and turning your arrangement into a beautiful bouquet. Let's get straight into it.

Select your range

It all starts with knowing what you want to create. Deciding on the shape, color scheme and type of flowers is the first step before purchasing flowers. It is very trendy to use pastel colors as a background and highlight some colors here and there to complete the elegant look.

Once you have finalized the design of your arrangement, it is time to purchase it beautiful flowers that work well together. Whether you want to go for complementary colors or monochromatic schemes, choose your flowers carefully and take your preferred color scheme into account.

The key is to be open-minded and discover how creative you can be within your happy zone. Be specific in your search, but artistic in your ideas before moving on to the next step.

Preparing flowers

Now that you have the flowers, it's time to cut them according to your range and get them ready for design. However, there are some essential steps needed to ensure that flowers last a long time in the actual deal.

Start by removing the extra leaves, buds and damaged petals that can affect your flowers. Once the stem has been cleared, make a diagonal cut at the bottom and place the stem in a freshwater bucket.

Buy your ship

Ships have varying degrees of influence on the scheme. The shape and color of your vase can change the entire aesthetic of flowers and their color combinations. Not only that, some flowers require longer barrels to last and stay in shape.

When choosing a vase, always keep your chosen flowers in mind. Let's say you want to add sunflowers or lilies to your arrangement; their tall branches and heavy flowers require the support of vertical and larger vessels.

When your vessel is ready, fill it with fresh water, line it with moss and add support to the top to keep the flowers in place. You can use tape or reuse the plastic bottles to make a grid.

Start with Basic

The best basis for arranging flowers is green. Start by adding some branches synchronously. The most commonly used vegetables are:

  • Ivy
  • Fern leaves
  • Eucalyptus
  • Myrtle
  • Lemon leaf
  • Bells of Ireland
  • Dusty Miller
  • Mint
  • Sensible
  • Basil
  • Chocolate mint

Use the greenery to create an inverted triangular shape, leaving plenty of room in between for flowers.

The base not only adds a solid background color to your arrangement, but gives it a horizontal and vertical look at the same time.

Add your flowers

This is the moment we have been preparing for, FLOWERS!!!

Use larger flowers in the periphery with small pieces of smaller flowers mixed naturally, then add the top layer. In floral arrangements, adding odd numbers can create a more natural and non-symmetrical look.

Don't let your flowers stick out too much or too little; create a balance so they look well supported without sagging or sticking out.

Sprinkle filler flowers

Filler Flowers give a breath of fresh air to every flower arrangement.

White filler flowers:

Some white filler flowers you can use are:

  • Baby's breath
  • Chamomile
  • Dianthus

  • Eupatorium
  • Statistics

  • White Astilbe
  • Wild Aster

Cream/Blush Filler Flowers

  • Solidago
  • Peach mini carnations
  • Sedum
  • Phlox
  • Apricot Statice
  • Rabbittail grass
  • Yarrow
  • Blush Astilbe
  • Diosma
  • Astrantia

Yellow filler flowers

Yellow filler flowers can add a beautiful and fresh touch to the flower arrangement. Some white filler flowers are:

  • Zinnia Golden Hour
  • Yellow Dill
  • Lady's mantle
  • Yellow pompoms
  • Bupleurum
  • Sunday gold Celosia
  • Yellow Quatre Coeurs Garden spray roses
  • Rue
  • Yarrow
  • Craspedia

Complete the design

After placing the filler flowers, your design is now ready, Viola!

Now complete your design with minor changes that will make the flowers look slightly out of place. Once you're satisfied, pour a gentle mist of water over your beautiful arrangement to keep it looking fresh and dewy. The key is to keep your flowers hydrated and fresh.

Final thoughts

Flower arrangements can only last so long, and after a day or two they start to wilt. However, with proper care, your flowers can stay fresh longer.

Keep changing the water, keep your flowers hydrated, and good luck with your endeavors!
