2 10 Types of Floral Design

3 Objectives Create floral designs in various geometric shapes and styles. Evaluate where a floral arrangement falls on the line-mass continuum. Describe traditional floral design styles with Oriental, European, and American origins. Classify floral design styles developed in the 20th century. Summarize current trends in floral design styles.

6 Circular Styles: Crescent
Rodionov Oleg/; Sergey Andrianov/

7 Circular Styles: Hogarth Curve
Key Points Sweeping S-shaped curve Tall vessel Floral foam higher than the container Appearance of two crescents placed end to end Beth McCampbell, Bloomtastic Florist, Columbus OH, SAF

8 Round Arrangement Foam sits above the container to make side accessible Place form flowers first Greens should stay within the framework Keep flowers equally spaced Goodheart-Willcox Publisher

9 Round Arrangement (continued)
Goodheart-Willcox Publisher Place 1/3 of a block of soaked floral foam into the container, secure with anchor tape, and place the dish with the long length side to side

10 Round Arrangement (continued)
Place first carnation directly in middle of floral foam. Place four carnations around base. Goodheart-Willcox Publisher

11 Round Arrangement (continued)
Place four carnations on the middle layer, on top of floral foam at 45° angle, halfway between the top flower and the four around the base. Note: this layer is placed opposite of the bottom layer. Goodheart-Willcox Publisher

12 Round Arrangement (continued)
Goodheart-Willcox Publisher Green the arrangement following the same pattern as the carnations.

13 Round Arrangement (continued)
Add the daisy poms halfway in each area where the carnations form a triangle. Goodheart-Willcox Publisher

14 Round Arrangement (continued)
Add statice for depth in the arrangement. Finish with adding limonium or another filler, staying within the form of the arrangement. Goodheart-Willcox Publisher

15 Triangular Styles: Equilateral Triangle
All sides equal Mayovskyy Andrew/

16 Triangular Styles: Isosceles Triangle
Two sides equal Oleg Rodionov/

17 Triangular Styles: Right Triangle

18 Triangular Styles: Double-Ended Triangle

19 Asymmetrical Triangle
Key Points Design from back corner of floral foam to the front to maintain balance Use sides of foam for horizontal insertions Equal spacing for good rhythm Goodheart-Willcox Publisher

20 Asymmetrical Triangle (continued)
Goodheart-Willcox Publisher Place 1/3 of a block of soaked floral foam into the container, secure with anchor tape and place the dish with the long length side to side.

21 Asymmetrical Triangle (continued)
Place first snapdragon in back, left-hand corner. Place next snapdragon directly in front of the first. Insert third snapdragon on right side of foam so it is horizontal and resting on lip of container. Goodheart-Willcox Publisher

22 Asymmetrical Triangle (continued)
Place the fourth snapdragon toward back of container, upright and to right of first flower. Insert fifth snapdragon in front left side so it is horizontal, lower than third flower, and resting on lip of container. Insert sixth snapdragon horizontally, halfway between the other horizontal flowers, resting on lip of container Goodheart-Willcox Publisher

23 Asymmetrical Triangle (continued)
The snapdragons now form the skeleton of the asymmetrical triangle. Using leatherleaf or greenery, mimic the shape of the line flower placements, reinforcing the asymmetrical triangle. Goodheart-Willcox Publisher

24 Asymmetrical Triangle (continued)
Insert the purple carnations within the framework of the snapdragons so they help define the asymmetrical form. Goodheart-Willcox Publisher

25 Asymmetrical Triangle (continued)
Add the lime green spray mums within the framework of the snapdragons to enforce the asymmetrical form. Add the filler within the framework to complete the arrangement. Goodheart-Willcox Publisher

26 Equilateral Triangle Place 1/3 of a block of soaked floral foam into the container. Secure with anchor tape and place the dish with the long length side to side. Goodheart-Willcox Publisher

27 Equilateral Triangle (continued)
Place tallest carnation in back third of the foam. Add two carnations in back half of the foam. Make sure the stems are inserted at least 1″ into the foam. Goodheart-Willcox Publisher

28 Equilateral Triangle (continued)
Add two carnations on either side of the arrangement. Flowers should rest on the lip of the container Place a carnation in the front of the arrangement, resting on the lip of the container. Goodheart-Willcox Publisher

29 Equilateral Triangle (continued)
Add one carnation on top of foam, halfway between tallest carnation and the one in front of container. Final two carnations are added on two front corners of the foam. Goodheart-Willcox Publisher

30 Equilateral Triangle (continued)
Look at the arrangement. Note the triangle formed by the bottom front, bottom side, and middle carnations. Goodheart-Willcox Publisher

31 Equilateral Triangle (continued)
Green the arrangement using the same pattern as you did with the carnations. Begin in the back and add to the sides to form the triangle. Move to the front and center. Goodheart-Willcox Publisher

32 Equilateral Triangle (continued)
Add the daisy mums between each set of carnations, following the same pattern as the carnations Goodheart-Willcox Publisher

33 Equilateral Triangle (continued)
Add a third texture such as purple statice. Place the statice in the same pattern as the carnations, but tucked in to add some depth to the composition. Goodheart-Willcox Publisher

34 Equilateral Triangle (continued)
Finish your arrangement by inserting the limonium or other light filler. Limonium Goodheart-Willcox Publisher

35 Long and Low Triangle Key Points
Create skeleton in proportion with greens Using a variety of greens for more texture Green the arrangement so the greens cover the utility container Goodheart-Willcox Publisher

36 Long and Low Triangle (continued)
Place fully-soaked foam in utility bowl and secure with anchor tape. Pillar candles must be inserted before inserting any greens or flowers. Goodheart-Willcox Publisher

37 Long and Low Triangle (continued)
Goodheart-Willcox Publisher Insert the leather leaf into the foam to form an outline.

38 Long and Low Triangle (continued)
Goodheart-Willcox Publisher The leaf placement will establish the height, width, and length of the double-ended triangle arrangement.

39 Long and Low Triangle (continued)
Goodheart-Willcox Publisher Staying within the parameters set by the beginning of the greens, complete greening the arrangement with leather leaf and the second greenery.

40 Long and Low Triangle (continued)
Insert the purple larkspur within the same parameters as the greens. Goodheart-Willcox Publisher

41 Long and Low Triangle (continued)
Insert pink carnations following same pattern as the greens, defining height, width, and length once again. Note: This is a symmetrical arrangement so what you do to one side, you must do the same to the other. Goodheart-Willcox Publisher

42 SBS Long and Low Triangle (continued)
Add yellow daisies throughout the arrangement Maintain the shape that was outlined by the greens and the pink carnations. Goodheart-Willcox Publisher

43 SBS Long and Low Triangle (continued)
Add Monte Cassino aster as a filler. Notice that darker colors will recede and the lighter colors will advance in this arrangement. Goodheart-Willcox Publisher

44 Line-Mass Continuum Pure linear design
Mostly linear design with some mass elements Equal emphasis on line and mass Mostly mass design with some linear elements Pure mass design Goodheart-Willcox Publisher
