Nico de Swert - Flower Arranging Video



In this video called How to Arrange Flowers and Create Simple Bouquets, the florist and stylist Nico de Swert shows you how to make a very simple arrangement using white carnations - yes, carnations! 

To give it a more dramatic effect Nico repeats the same arrangement along a narrow mantelpiece in 5 identical vases.

This is an arrangement that is very easy to adapt - you can use a different flower or vase and different ribbons to match or contrast the flowers.  

The video is 3:15 min long.





Grab a cup of coffee and watch some of these other videos. They are all brilliant, informative and easy to learn from.
