Best filler flowers

Any professional florist will confirm that filler flowers can make or break a flower arrangement. In order to assemble a bouquet and make sure that it’s balance, it’s important to understand the difference between focal and filler flowers. When you look at a bouquet, where do your eyes instantly fall? These flowers are your focal flowers and they are usually brighter and bigger than the rest. It is the job of the mass and filler flowers to fill in the gaps and make your focal flowers stand out even more. Think of the way your bridesmaids stand by the bride and make her look even more beautiful.

Baby’s breath is one of the most popular and easy to recognize flowers. These clusters of small flowers are just what you need to add a splash of colour and texture. Think about a bunch of red roses accompanied by a few stems of baby’s breath. It doesn’t take a lot to achieve floral perfection when you pair a flower with baby’s breath.

For larger arrangements, baby’s breath might be a bit small. It could get lost with all the other flowers and foliage around. Instead, you could consider adding a flower that has a significantly smaller diameter than your focal flowers. Fillers play a similar role to that of foliage and you should never overcrowd your bouquet. Think about small chrysanthemums, carnations, and other miniature versions of popular flowers. Queen Anne’s lace is suitable for larger bouquets but they should be used with care because they can tend to take over the display if you use too many or larger clusters.

Don’t forget about other fillers in the form of berries such as hypericum. They add colour as well as amazing texture. Sticks and various other natural items including feathers are also considered fillers but make sure that they suit the theme and colour scheme.
