A Wednesday night post. On Valentine's Day I shared a tablescape on Instagram. I received so many messages on what I used to create such a full size arrangement. I decided that a blog post was necessary & since, I'll definitely be using the floral arrangement in different spaces.
At the end of the post I'll add photos of the florals that I used, some may be similar if I am unable to find the exact ones.
To start when I create a large floral arrangement that needs to be tight in the center, I create a tape grid. You can use floral tape, but this time I used scotch tape as I have it on hand for my digital print styling. Once I have the grid then it's time to create the arrangement.
I like to use a variety of florals to add depth & texture & a color scheme. Since I use faux florals, I feel that it is important to use a variety of florals when creating a large arrangement. When using several I weave different florals into one another to create depth. In this arrangement I have 4 of the same peonies that are still all connected & the rest are individuals. The 4 are my base and the rest are my fillers to not have any gaps. I like to have the florals fall or cascade as they would in a garden, it gives a whimsical & a natural look when using faux. I just add fillers until I achieve the look that I want & all is covered.
Create a grid with tape for large arrangements
Cut stems only when necessary. I prefer to bend them, that way I can use them in different styles & size arrangements.
Mix faux & real
I hope I have given you some insight on how I create my arrangements, the season has just begun & I have many arrangements planned already.
Thank you for all the support & encouragement!
