The term “pavé” is French for “paved” and basically describes floral looks that are completely covered with flowers having a relatively uniform profile. Everything is packed tightly together, for a lush, textural look. Wondering where you might have seen this look before? Well, this is the method used when they make those Rose Bowl Parade Floats, but also works well for creating unique wedding arches, centerpieces, pomanders, and escort card flower beds.

Pavé flowers can be all one type–like a mass of carnations OR they can be a mixture of blooms, textures and foliages all similar in overall height. This method is also used when making flower-covered monograms, wreaths, pomanders, and floral ring bearer pillows.
