Today I wanted to focus on Pavé floral arrangements. I have not yet created one for Wednesday’s Flowers and I truly enjoy them, so I figured it was about time I shared one with you.
Pavé is French for pavement and that is what is trying to be achieved when creating a Pavé floral arrangement. The style it meant to look like a low continuous flow of elements, clustered together in a well organized manner; low and flowing. Traditionally Pavé has all the flowers cut to the same height, so a very flat arrangement is created, but I like to create them with a bit of height differentiation. I find this gives the finished design more interest and depth. The other great thing about Pavé is they are very easy to create and develop into a work of art in no time.
To create a Pavé arrangement you need the following:
- Oasis Flower Foam
- A Low Bowl or Container – Must be able to hold the Oasis
- Fresh Flowers – Cut the stems short
- Scissors or Floral Knife
- Floral Tape – To tape the Oasis to the container
- Textured Elements – Dried pods, foliage, short branches and dried grasses
If you have never tried Pavé arrangement I strongly suggest you do, it is so easy and I know you will be pleased with the results. I always am!
