Tall flower bouquet design advice

Just as fresh flowers come in all shapes and sizes, so too do flower arrangements. Some are larger than others. There are also vertical and horizontal designs. If you want to create a tall flower bouquet, you will need to follow just a few basic guidelines. Here are the steps you should follow.

Flower selection

The first step in creating a tall flower arrangement is flower selection. You will need to choose fresh flowers that have tall enough stems and large enough flower heads. The size of the vase will depend on the length of the stems. Yes, you will need to trim the stems but you should take care not to cut them too short.

Create a base

When you are ready to create your tall flower arrangement, begin by creating a base. You can do this with flowers such as hydrangeas. These blooms consist of dozens of small flowers clustered together on a single stem. They are available in several colours so you can take your pick. White is great if you want a neutral base for your flower display.

Add colour

Next, you can add colour and some variety in texture by inserting lilies in the centre of your tall flower bouquet. Make sure that you choose lilies with tall stems and bright colours. Their stems should be cut longer than the stems of your hydrangeas so that they stand out above the rest of the blooms. Remember, as you add each stem to your vase, you need to trim the stem and remove any leaves that would otherwise end up in the vase. Leaves that are higher up on the stem can be left in place. This way, you don’t have to worry about adding foliage.

Finishing touches

You can now complete your tall flower arrangement by adding some long-stemmed blooms like calla lilies to the bouquet. These will be the tallest of all and you should distribute them evenly throughout the arrangement for a balanced final appearance.

Once you have created the perfect tall flower arrangement, you need to find the perfect spot to show it off. You can place it in the middle of a table or even on a table in the corner of a room.
