For stunning winter white floral arrangements, start by layering in deep and waxy greens (appropriate to the season, and probably available locally) while remembering to work both from front to back and side to side. Make use of a turntable if you have one to help you curate the look from every angle!

Next, add in any predominantly green/brown-colored textural elements like berries and seed pods to spice up your base layer, moving seamlessly on to your long-line florals—those reaching stems such as tuberose that can carry color to the edge of the arrangement—especially if they feature transitional hues.

Finally, begin to layer in your chorus of whites. It's best to utilize varying bloom and bud size, assorted shapes, and ranges of color according to the elements and principles of design you want to feature. Place height or shape elements penultimately, and insert large focal flowers and framing leaves last of all.

 
 

Key Points:

  • Build a solid foliage foundation first to support and help pop your winter white blossoms.

  • Work from the outer edge inward when placing your spectrum of whites, considering bloom shape and size while creating moments of balance, unity, rest, repetition, etc.

  • Add gestural elements just before finishing off with focal blooms and framing agents
