Basic design principles, when applied to flower arranging, will help you create stunning displays
Just as in landscaping or interior decorating, design principles can aid in creating a beautiful flower arrangement. Design is not limited to the overall shape of an arrangement, but also should be included in the selection of color along with the shape and texture of leaves, stems, and flowers.
A mass arrangement may be "too" balanced; if depth is properly achieved, then the balance remains alive and flowing.
Look at each focal flower and determine its weight from a visual standpoint. By combining the right mix of filler flowers and greenery, the centerpiece will not look overbalanced - or as if it is about to fall over.
Rhythm is also achieved by forced progression of sizes and shapes. You can add flowers from light to dark, also called color gradation, or from smallest to large for a progressive rhythmic style.
