Silk flower design is the art of using silk flowers to create pleasing and balanced floral arrangements. This article discusses how to use the aspects of floral design to create the perfect floral arrangement for your home. To create a floral arrangement that will blend with its surroundings it requires you to think about balance, color, form and accent.


Balance involves using equal amounts of color in your flower arrangements.

Balance also involves choosing flowers of different sizes that nonetheless equal out when seen together; or simply picking flowers of the same size to create consistency.


Color is without doubt the most important aspect when it comes to arranging silk flowers. Color is what pleases or displeases the eye. Your choice of color, and its different blends and shades will be a determining factor when selecting a flower arrangement. Choosing too many silk flowers with colors that don’t flow naturally will represent shouting and disorder in your arrangement.


Form deals with the structural quality of the individual artificial plants and flowers, and also with the structural quality of the whole arrangement.
