Ombre Flower Arrangement How-To
I adore anything ombre, so when Pollen Floral Design came to us with this stunning ombre flower arrangement, I got just a tad excited! These pretty pink florals and lush greens were all captured beautifully by the talented Cambria Grace Photography and I’m happy to share them with you.
From the florist, Pollen Floral Design: In order to create this ombre look, we start by foraging some local greens. If you don’t have a yard with readily available foliage, look for greens growing on the side of the road, over a fence, or ask your neighbor with the green thumb.
Once all the elements are gathered, begin designing your arrangement with your greens. You want to create a full, lush look that will be the basic structure for you design.
Then we start creating the color gradient by placing the white blooms on the right side of the arrangement. Place your larger flowers first (peonies and garden roses). Then fill in any remaining holes with a smaller white flower (mock orange, dahlias or other small bloom).
Continue building your color gradient by adding more and more pink as you build to the left side of the arrangement. Again, start by adding your larger roses and peonies first, then add in the smaller scabiosa flowers and buds for additional texture and depth.
If you prefer to make an ombre bouquet, follow the same steps, but hold the stems in your hand as you design and tie them off with a beautiful ribbon!
