2 Objectives To learn principles of floral design
To become familiar with elements of floral design To recognize floral design forms

3 Principles of Floral Design
Have you ever placed flowers randomly in a vase? How did it compare to an arrangement from a florist? How does a floral designer create a theme or mood with flowers?

4 Principles of Floral Design
Establish guidelines governing placement of flowers Involve relationships among all parts of design Guide arranger in creating a work of art

5 Principles & Elements Principles and Elements of Design apply to all art forms Elements are the components that make up the design Principles describe the way the elements fit together Principles are the recipe; elements are the ingredients

6 Principles Effective designs incorporate: rhythm balance emphasis
proportion unity harmony

7 Balance Arrangement should demonstrate mechanical and visual stability
May be symmetrical or asymmetrical

8 Balance Mechanical balance
Container is proper size and weight for the flowers Lines converge at focal point

9 Balance Visual balance affected by color, texture and size
Darker colors appear heavier Larger flowers appear heavier and should be closer to the focal point

10 Emphasis Create a focal point or accented area
Center of interest draws the eye of the viewer Use color, size or unique shape to create focal point

11 Proportion & Scale Pleasing size relationships among all components of design and surrounding area Proper proportion of flowers to container Tall container 1.5 to 2 times the height of vase Low, flat container – to 2 times the width of container

12 Proportion & Scale Proper proportion of flowers to foliage and to each other Pleasing proportion is achieved by locating larger flowers at the focal point and placing gradually smaller flowers away from the center of interest

13 Proportion & Scale Arrangement must fit with its surroundings
A small arrangement on the stage of an auditorium would appear insignificant

14 Rhythm Flow of lines, textures or colors that create a feeling of motion Draws the observer through a visual path of the design Achieved by repetition, radiation and transition

15 Unity All components blend together without separation
Achieved by repetition of related components

16 Harmony All components of the design fit together in an aesthetically pleasing composition

17 Elements of Floral Design
Line Texture Form Color

18 Line Provides a visual path for the eye
Establishes framework of the design Lines can reflect certain emotional qualities vertical lines evoke strength curved lines are graceful, gentle horizontal lines are relaxing

19 Texture Refers to the surfaces of flowers and foliage:
smooth rough glossy Coarse textures are bold and may be used to create a focal point Fine textures are placed further from the focal point or as filler material

20 Form Shapes of flowers, foliage and containers
Geometric shape of the overall design

21 Examples of Design Forms

22 Color Primary colors: red, yellow, blue
Secondary colors (two primary colors combined in equal amounts): green, violet, orange Tertiary colors: primary color and adjacent secondary color Neutral colors: black, white, gray

23 Design Types Line designs Mass designs Line-mass
lines emphasized over form characterized by openness and negative space Mass designs utilizes a quantity of material with little or no negative space Line-mass linear designs enhanced with additional material both line and mass are important but neither dominate

24 Principles To create pleasing and effective floral designs:
have a working knowledge of the principles of design know how to work with the elements of design be familiar with the basic types and forms of floral designs
