Balance- is achieved in a floral design when flower size and container flow together and complement each other. The arrangement has visual weight on each side of the axis to make it stand alone. If the arrangement is symmetrical the floral design could be divided in half ad have equal visual weight on each side of the arrangement.

Focal Point- It is important in some designs because it creates the accent and interest. This will catch the eye of the viewer.Proportion- in an arrangement is important to keep relative size, color, and texture of the flowers to create a pleasing arrangement. Scale- Is a principle that must be taken into consideration. The size of the flowers, where the arrangement is to be used, placement of the arrangement, and overall size of the completed design are all factors of scale.

Line flowers are ones such as snapdragons, delphinium, and gladiolus. In most cases these flowers are used to establish the outer framework of an arrangement.

Massing flowers are those which have the flower head on the terminal end of the stem. These flowers are used in the arrangement to create all of the design principles and to accent the focal point. Some

examples are roses, carnations, chrysanthemums, and asters.
