Rules of Assembling A Colorful Faux Plant Arrangement

A colorful artificial flower arrangement attuned to the tastes and preferences of a gathering or yourself is not particularly difficult to achieve if you’re following closely a few rules in the preparation.

You Don’t Need A Color Palette

The beauty of faux plants, like real plants, is that there can be a certain chaos involved and everything will still appear relatively natural. You don’t need to go by a color palette although some may prefer it. Rely on your intuition to tell you what fits.

Height Is Tall From Back To Front

Tall greenery goes towards the back of the arrangement. The less tall and smaller fake plants are positioned in the front. This sort of order to the height will help make a collection of flowers, greenery, and plants appear as intentional.

Fill It In, Don’t Cram It In

If this is your first time assembling a colorful faux plant arrangement, be careful not to overdo it. There’s a reason the best bouquets and arrangements have lots of greenery to them. It helps separates and breaks up the features of the more expressive plants and flowers. Try to fill in your plant arrangement just until it feels like it’s overboard and then maybe take out one or two hopefully leaving behind the perfect vision.

Consider What’s Around It

A plant arrangement does not exist on its own. Take into account where it will be placed and its surroundings. Ensure the colors don’t blend to the point of disguise or clash in an unpleasant aesthetic. This may help you identify what shape, size, or look you want for an artificial plant arrangement.

Choose A Planter

Your floral arrangement is going in a planter of some kind. Find a planter that speaks to the occasion. A wedding, for example, may have a clear white ceramic planter depending on its theme. Meanwhile, a planter you’d use for a fall faux plant arrangement might be a little more rustic, aged, and worn.

Present ‘Faux’ As Real

Even though you’re using fake plants, you still want to do what you can to give off the illusion they’re real. This can be as simple as ensuring they’re the right shape and looking their best in a planter. It can also mean using a vase to put faux flowers in water or using wood chips, stones, artificial grass, and moss, to make a more dynamic presentation inside of your planter.

Light And Dark

With any faux plant collection, you have an opportunity to see a range of contrasts. One of the more obvious is how the lighter colors relate to the darker colors and which one’s dominating. There aren’t any distinct rules in how to use the ‘light v. dark’ phenomenon but it is something florists would tell you to be aware of.

Hard And Soft

You also might notice a contract in shape. Harder, pointier shapes. Softer, fluffier shapes. An arrangement of fake plants is going to probably have both but it doesn’t necessarily have to. Again, consider the ways you can play with the ‘hard v. soft’ relationship, just like with light and dark.
