Easy flower arrangement tips for the no-frills florist

Designing your own floral arrangements is easier than you think.

Designing your own floral arrangements is easier than you think. A few quick basics and a little creativity is all you need to become a DIY flower artist.

Flower Arranging 101

  • Build a foundation with your sturdiest plants and flowers first.
  • Add in your showstoppers (large or vibrant statement flowers).
  • Fill in with your delicates and wispy elements.
  • Hide the mechanics of the arrangement. Add more or shift around foliage to camouflage your frog or wires.
  • Keep the arrangement relatively proportionate to its container.
  • Take a step back every now and then to view your arrangement as a whole.
