Parallel Spring Arrangement

Spring into Creativity with this Parallel Design

Time: 25 minutes and 30 seconds | Season: Spring (but can recreate with alternative flowers year round)

Embrace the art of floristry with a flourish this spring. In our detailed tutorial, we’ll guide you through creating a Spring themed Arrangement in parallel design that effortlessly combines structure and spontaneity. This sophisticated style, displayed in a sleek trough, is versatile enough for church settings, aisle decor, or as an eye-catching centre piece on a long table. The vertical lines and varying heights not only draw the eye but also celebrate the diverse textures and hues of the season.

Discover techniques for arranging different stems to achieve balance and harmony, and gain confidence in making selections that will turn heads at any event.

Top Tips:

  1. Work with the natural shape of your flowers for an organic feel: Both tulips and snapdragons are phototropic and bend towards the light.
  2. Use eco-friendly mechanics: Instead of using floral foam, you can use alternative mechanics such as chicken wire, moss, or fibre floral / Agra wool to ensure that the design is eco-friendly and sustainable.
  3. Consider colour gradients for visual impact
