Interested in creating an outdoor arrangement for the winter? If so, you are at the right place at the right time. Here are three simple tips guaranteed to help you create the perfect outdoor arrangement this winter.

Tip #1 - Use Artificial Silk Florals

If you know anything about Calgary, you know the winters can be quite extreme. You should opt to use artificial silk florals instead of natural florals. Due to the extreme cold, natural florals won't last very long.

The great thing about artificial florals is you can use them year after year. This makes them very cost effective. If you want to spice things up a bit consider mixing in a few real winter greens.

Tip #2 - Balance

When creating an arrangement balance is very important. If you have a traditional home with ample space, try a symmetrical arrangement that flanks the door. If you have floral arrangements in high traffic areas, make sure there is plenty of space for people to walk around.

Those owning a more contemporary home may not have as much space to work with. If this is the case, put the arrangement in groups of three. Make sure each piece is a different height. The display will look very abundant yet take up very little space.

Tip #3 - Keep Things Simple

Winter time is not the time to try and be super creative with your outdoor arrangements. Keep them simple and sweet. Choose one theme and stick with it. When you go to the craft store, don't pick up everything you see. Remember your theme and work around it

After you have decided on a set of colours you want to feature in your arrangement, make a trip to the craft store. While there, make sure you keep these tips in mind.
