How To Style Artificial Flowers In Your Home

There is no better feeling than walking into a home that is practically blooming with flowers.

Flowers can be incredibly emotive, easily bringing feelings of joy and freshness to the home. While many may associate these feelings with fresh flowers from a flower market, they are also easily achieved with our range of incredibly lifelike artificial flowers.

Read on for our tips and tricks of the trade, and how to make your home look and feel like a fresh flower market – all year round.




Flower Styling Tips

Styling tip 1: Be unique when choosing vases

Don’t be afraid to mix and match a variety of vessels of different constructions such as glass, ceramic and metal within the one room.

Styling tip 2: Vary the heights in your bouquet

Vary the heights of your flowers to make the arrangement look more natural and not too perfect! Did you know, odd numbers of decorative items look best; like a cluster of three vases, whereas even numbers are best for practical items, such as a set of six wine glasses.

Styling tip 3: Choose a few key colours

Keep it simple and stick to one or two colours of flowers and then add in some greenery or buds to enhance the arrangement.

Styling tip 6: Don’t go overboard with flower varieties

When selecting your flowers, keep the colour palette refined and use a maximum of three to five flower varieties.



Styling tip 7: Don’t be afraid to cut or bend stems

Bouquets can be made smaller by bending or cutting the stems to suit a smaller vase. This is perfect for a smaller space, such as a bathroom or next to a bed.

Keep the greenery of your existing arrangement and just update the colour of the flowers.




Tricks of the Trade

Trick 1: Arrange your flowers in your hand first

When selecting your flowers, try arranging them in your hand first. By doing this you can add or take away flowers without worrying about them not sitting quite right in the vase.
Once you are happy with your selection, add them to your vase one stem at a time, starting with the biggest stem/branch.

Selecting Flowers

Trick 2: Use a hairdryer to clean

If your flowers have accumulated a little dust, a blast from a hair dryer will easily remove it, without disturbing the order of your arrangement.

Trick 3: Hide stems using a leaf

If you are bending your stems to make them the right height or they have uneven lengths, you can disguise the unsightly stems by wrapping a leaf around the inside of your glass vase and your guests will be none the wiser!

Trick 4: How to cut your stems to the right height

While arranging your flowers, you may notice that the stems are all different lengths. There is a very simple way to work out what length you need to suit your vase.
Sit the vase on the edge of a table, hold up your flowers to where you want them to sit – that way you will know where you need to cut or bend the stem.

Trick 5: How to lengthen a short stem

Have flowers with different length stems? If you’d like a flower to sit higher than the stem allows, discreetly sticky tape it to a longer stem. Once it’s mixed in the bouquet, no-one will be able to notice the shorter stem.
