Tips for Arranging Artificial Flowers Like a Pro

Arranging artificial flowers is an art form. When done well, an artificial flower arrangement can brighten up any space and bring life into your home decor. If you're new to arranging artificial flowers, here are some tips to help you create an arrangement like a pro:

Choose a focal point. 

Select one artificial flower variety to be the focal point of your arrangement. This could be the largest bloom or the most vibrant color. Build around this focal point by adding other flowers, greenery, and accents.

Vary the height.

Use flowers and greenery of different lengths and heights to add dimension and interest to your arrangement.

Group by color.

Group artificial flowers together in bunches by the same color family. Complementary colors that look nice together include blue and orange, red and green, and yellow and purple.

Include greenery.

Add greenery like eucalyptus, boxwood, ivy or ferns around the edges of your arrangement. Greenery fills in empty spaces and enhances the overall look. It provides a more natural feel and texture.

Use an odd number.

Arrange your artificial flowers in a vase using an odd number, e.g. 3, 5, 7 blooms and so on. Odd numbers create an asymmetrical, casual and more natural look.

Change directions.

Have your blooms and greenery pointing in different directions for a dramatic, whimsical effect. Some stems up, some cascading down and others off to one side.
