A little bit about the term "pavé"!
The word "pavé" (pronounced pa-vay) is the French word for "paved". Similar to a walkway or path paved with cobblestones, pavé flower arrangements are created by removing the leaves and trimming the stems relatively short, and then placing the flower heads very close together- thus giving the illusion of a solid surface. This term is also used frequently in the jewelry industry.
Pavé floral arrangements work best when made up of flowers with dense, compact heads (such as roses, ranunculus, or carnations). Because the construction of the arrangement is very compact with few accents and little to no greenery, it presents as a very crisp, clean & contemporary look. Pavé style arrangements are ideal for any occasion that calls for a touch of elegance and sophistication, and are seen frequently incorporated into wedding bouquets and smaller tabletop arrangements calling for a mounded shape.
