Floral design is the art of using plant materials and flowers to create a pleasing and balanced composition. Refined floristry. Professionally designed floral designs, arrangements or artwork incorporate the elements of floral design: line, form, space, texture, and color, and the principles of floral design: balance, proportion, rhythm, contrast, harmony, and unity.
