The easiest and arguably one of the most impacting is a centerpiece of flowers. Getting this right for me is one of two things; the right vase, and not thinking that the bouquet doesn’t need rearranging after you’ve bought it. They always look cute wrapped up, but they don’t usually sit right in a vase unless you do a bit of fiddling and rearranging – although The Real Flower Co. do cut and arrange their bouquets to help you out as much as possible with this, and this particular bouquet looked pretty perfect without much work!
A rounded vase is a MUST, there’s just something about being able to get all the stems in at an angle that makes the bouquet sit better. I try to space out the flowers evenly and then add the foliage around them.
MINI BUNCHES IN JARS
This is something I really like to do after I’ve had a bouquet for a few days; chop some of the length off and arrange mini bouquets in jars. Perhaps they don’t have quite the impact of a big bouquet, but it does mean you get to enjoy the flowers in more rooms, and it usually helps them last a few days longer too.
FILLING THE MANTELPIECE
This isn’t something I do all that often, but it’s visually stunning, although you do need quite a few little vases to do this properly! I think this would be amazing to have lots of the tiny glass vases with individual flowers in, perhaps even with all of the same flower in. What do you think of this method?
Of course, it makes it a whole lot easier when you’re styling as beautiful flowers as these from The Real Flower Company. They kindly sent over this bunch from their stunning Valentines collection, that is full of seasonal flowers in red and pink shades. The peony pink roses are such a special addition that you won’t find in most bouquets, and the mix with tulips and waxflowers is so lovely, all delivered in a box complete with a little bow!
The Real Flower Company produce all their own flowers on their English and Fairtrade farms, and you can certainly tell the quality immediately. I honestly think this is the most beautiful bouquet I’ve ever received, and I’ll be a little devastated when they die on me.
