Arranging your own artificial flower arrangement can be tricky at times
This is especially true for people who have no previous experience with flower arrangements
To help you choose the best flowers, here’s some of the things you need to look out for…
Artificial flowers that suit your budget
As much as possible, adjust the flowers to your budget and not the other way around. You wouldn’t want to spend too much on them especially if you’re still unsure of what you want. The best way to go about this is by picking out a specific artificial flower that’s less pricey and then purchasing a bunch of them that you can group together to form an arrangement of your own.
Select bigger artificial flowers
Bigger flower heads usually take up more space but they will look good with other flowers with smaller heads. Among the flowers you can incorporate for this look are hydrangeas, sunflowers, banksias, proteas, peonies, magnolias, and tulips among many others.
Go for unscented artificial flowers
Consider not just the health of your family members, but your visitors as well. Having a flower arrangement with scented artificial flowers might cause allergies to one of your guests. Some artificial scents can be very highly-allergenic, so if possible, create an arrangement with unscented artificial flowers. They don’t necessarily need to have a scent anyway.
Limit the filler flowers you’re using
Sure it’s nice to fill out the seemingly empty spaces in between your large flowers in the arrangement, but do they actually look good when they’re taking up most of the space around the main flowers? Having too much filler flowers in order to make your arrangement bigger can make it look cheap, overdesigned, and tacky, so limit it to a few, tasteful number as much as you can.
Use artificial flowers in singular colours
Sure it’s nice to have a few colours on your arrangements, but having a singular colour can look very decent and tasteful as well. Not only does it look elegant and classy, you won’t have a hard time figuring out what flower goes with what and which colours blend well with which colour.
Decorate them with foliage
Adding foliage elements to your artificial flower arrangement is not only aesthetically-pleasing, it’s also budget-friendly when done strategically. Foliage is meant to fill out the spaces in between your main flowers and your fillers, so make sure you don’t overdo them as well. Just add enough foliage to make sure the major spots are filled.
