    Flower Arranging Tips Beginners


    Flowers possess this incredible talent for instantly jazzing up any space, injecting it with beauty, vibrant colors, and a generous dose of nature. Here at LVLY, we're all about showcasing these blooming wonders, which is why we take great pride in our flower jars. While traditional bouquets have their charm and can make people go weak at the knees, we go the extra mile to ensure that you and your loved ones can revel in the glory of your flowers for even longer with our fantastic flower jars. 

    However, let's not underestimate the artistry and finesse required to arrange flowers in a vase (or a jar, in our case). It takes a dash of skill and a pinch of know-how. In this post, fear not, for we shall be your guiding light, leading you through the enchanting process of creating stunning floral arrangements that will impress and ignite inspiration.


    Choosing the Right Vase

    Choosing the right vase is the crucial first step in crafting a truly captivating flower arrangement. So, let's talk vase selection, shall we? You'll want to consider a few key factors: size, shape, material, and how it complements the style of the flowers you've got in mind. Lucky for you, LVLY's blooms come with jars that are just perfect for your chosen arrangement. We've got you covered, and we're not here to give you any unnecessary headaches, promise!



    Preparing the Flowers

    Before you embark on your flower arranging adventure, let's gather up all the necessary tools and materials. You know, the stuff that will make your life a whole lot easier. We're talking about those handy-dandy tools like scissors, floral tape, and a trusty vase. Can't forget the vase!

    Now, when it comes to selecting the flowers, let your preferences and the occasion guide you. Don't be afraid to let your personal taste shine through! Think about the types of flowers you like, the colors that make your heart skip a beat, and the sizes that fit your fancy. This is your chance to create something truly special, so choose wisely!


    Creating a Balanced Composition

    Understanding the principles of floral design is absolutely essential if you want to create an arrangement that's as balanced as a Zen master on a tightrope. Let's break it down, shall we? Consider factors like proportion, scale, balance, symmetry, color, and texture. These elements are like the Spice Girls of flower arranging—they each bring their unique flavor to the mix.

    Now, here's where it gets interesting. Location and purpose play a vital role in your floral masterpiece. Are you creating a centerpiece for a romantic dinner or a statement piece for a grand event? You wouldn't want to whip out a giant bouquet of daisies for a formal affair, now would you? Well, unless you're trying to make a statement about the rebellious nature of simplicity. Hey, we won't judge!

    Oh, and let's not forget about the almighty focal point. Think of it as the Beyoncé of your arrangement—eye-catching, commanding attention, and stealing the show. It's like having a diva in your midst, but in a good way. Make sure to plan it wisely and give it the spotlight it deserves.



    Building the Flower Arrangement

    • Begin with lush greenery or filler flowers to create a natural-looking base.
    • Strategically place focal flowers and blooms for height and depth.
    • Use secondary and accent flowers to add variety in colors and textures.
    • The foliage foundation provides a sturdy base for the arrangement.
    • Let the focal flowers steal the spotlight while secondary and accent flowers complement them.
    • Aim to create a captivating visual experience and make a statement with your arrangement.
    • Impress friends and neighbors with a well-designed floral display.


    Fine-Tuning the Arrangement

    Before you pat yourself on the back, let's do a little reality check, shall we? Step back, my friends, and take a good look at the balance and proportion of your arrangement. It's like a dance, really. If something seems off, tweak those stem lengths and angles like a pro choreographer. You wouldn't want a lopsided tango, would you?

    It's time to address those pesky gaps and empty spaces. We need to fill in those gaps with some smaller flowers or maybe even some extra foliage. It's like adding the finishing touches to a masterpiece, ensuring that every nook and cranny is brimming with life and beauty.


    Caring for the Arrangement

    To ensure the everlasting beauty of your magnificent floral arrangement, let's dive into a handful of care tips that will have those blooms thriving like a botanical dream. First things first, stay on top of the water game by changing it regularly. No one wants their precious petals wallowing in a sad, stagnant swamp, right? Keep things fresh and fabulous!

    Now, it's time for a little trim trim. Give those stems a snip-snip every few days to keep them in tip-top shape. Think of it as a floral spa day, complete with a refreshing haircut. Oh, and while you're at it, don't forget to wave goodbye to any wilted blooms that might be cramping the style of your arrangement. They're just dead weight, after all.

    Of course, we can't forget about the ambiance. Flowers, like us, thrive under the right lighting and temperature conditions. So, let there be light! Find a cozy spot where your botanical beauties can bask in a suitable amount of sunshine. And as for the temperature, remember to keep it comfortable, not too hot, not too chilly. Just the Goldilocks zone for your precious petals.

    By following these simple yet oh-so-important tips, your floral display will dazzle and amaze, capturing the hearts of all who lay their eyes upon it. It's like having a little secret garden right in your home, enchanting and awe-inspiring.



    Arranging flowers in a vase is a rewarding and creative endeavor. By following the steps outlined in this guide, you can create stunning floral displays that bring joy and beauty to any space.
