Types of Flower Arrangement

Flower arrangement is an art and many florists and creative artists take this art very seriously. It's not necessary that only exotic flowers are used to make beautiful flower arrangements. Magical creations are possible even with simple flowers and even wild flowers. There are several types of flower arrangement. Depending on the focal point, shape of the arrangement and the fillers used, there are 7 types of flower arrangements.

They are as follows:
  • Horizontal Flower Arrangement-

    A very shallow container is used to make this type of flower arrangement. It has a single big flower as the focal point and drooping flower branches are added to each side. Rose is the main flower used as the focal point in this type of flower arrangement. Horizontal flower arrangements are very low and hence are suitable for center table decorations.

  • Horizontal flower arrangement

  • Vertical Flower Arrangement-

    It is a very tall flower arrangement. Very tall stems of flowers and leaves like tulips, roses and carnations are used for this type of flower arrangement. Shorter fillers like forget-me-not are used to make the arrangement look balanced.

  • Vertical arrangement

  • Oval Flower Arrangement-

    This type of flower arrangement has the brightest and tallest flowers in the center. The color and the size of the flowers are allowed to gradually reduce by degrees towards the sides. Oval flower arrangements look formal and hence it's used mostly in formal settings.
