Crafting a pavé tapestry arrangement is an act of beauty and reverence, perfectly suited for expressing condolences. This tutorial will guide you through the thoughtful process of selecting and arranging flowers into a dense, patterned design. It’s a floral gesture that honours a life with dignity and grace.

This design was made popular by Michelle Skelton, a designer in New Zealand. Tapestry designs involve blocks of colour, texture and form that lead from one group to another. Typically there is little space between the elements, limited height and usually viewed from above.

Top Tips:

  • Select flowers with complementary hues for a soothing palette.
  • Maintain a uniform surface level for that classic pavé look.
  • Use floral adhesive to secure your design without damaging delicate petals.
