Video: Foundations of a Wedding Centerpiece

What are the three levels of an arrangement, and why should we be thinking about them as we design? In this video, Kelly walks you through the design principles of balance, shape, and rest and how she used them to guide every piece she creates. These three principles are the building blocks that lead to efficiency, balance, and freedom in design!

This video is one of a three-part series, and is both a great place to start if you are new to designing, and also a refresh if you are feeling stuck in a rut. You’ll see the process of designing centerpieces with new eyes and receive a breath of fresh air regarding the creative process.

Design Principles

  • Balance - shape and size, proportions, often with foliage
  • Movement - implied lines, moving the eye through the arrangement, creating space for the large flowers to rest
  • Rest - gives our eye a place to take a break
