flower arranging


  • Floral design or flower arrangement is the art of using plant materials and flowers to create an eye-catching and balanced composition or display.

  • In contrast, the European style emphasizes color and variety of botanical materials not limited to just blooming flowers, in mass gatherings of multiple flowers.

  • Ikebana is a Japanese style of floral design, and incorporates the three main line placements of heaven, human, and earth.

  • Professionally designed floral designs, arrangements or artwork incorporate the elements of floral design: line, form, space, texture, and color, and the principles of floral
    design: balance, proportion, rhythm, contrast, harmony, and unity.

  • Dried arrangements and related media Permanent creations and components incorporating dried materials such as bark, wood, dried flowers, dried (and often aromatic) inflorescences,
    leaves, leaf skeletons, preserved materials and artefacts, are common extensions of the art floral design, and are of practical importance in that they last indefinitely and are independent of the seasons.
