Generally speaking, the height of the flower arrangement (i.e., the first main branch height) should not exceed 1.5-2 times the height of the flower arrangement container, the container height is calculated as the diameter of the mouth of the bottle plus its own height. After the height of the first main branch is determined, the height of the second main branch is 2/3 of the height of the first main branch, and the height of the third main branch is 1/2 of the height of the second main branch, which can be measured visually by experience during the specific creation process. Second, the third branch plays a balanced role in the composition, the number is not limited, but the size and proportion should be coordinated. The proportion between the natural flower arrangement and the flower vessel must be appropriate, so that the staggered, sparse and dense, to avoid the foot, shrinkage, disorder. Regular flower arrangements and abstract flower arrangements are best handled according to the golden ratio, that is, the height of the bottle is 3, the height of the flower material is 5, the total height of 8, the ratio of 3:5:8 can be. Bouquets can also be wrapped according to this ratio.

  In terms of color matching between the flower and the container, a plain vase with fine flowers and light chrysanthemums has a sense of harmony; a strong and decorative dahlia with a shiny glazed rough pot can show its rugged style; a light blue water mantle should be inserted with low and dense pink daisies or chrysanthemums; a crystal clear glass vase with a thin neck should be inserted with gerbera chrysanthemums and decorated with the master, and its branches and stems wrapped around the body of the vase.
  In terms of the floral characteristics of the East and West, the Western floral art, the number of branches, strong colors and strong contrast; while the Eastern floral art is less branches, focusing on natural gesture beauty, more light, light colors, to the elegance of the long.
