You cannot underestimate the power of the ‘pick me up’ adding flowers to your home adds, they need not be expensive but it’s always worth treating yourself, you deserve it!
Decorating your home is all about creating your very own sanctuary, my home is my happy place. You cannot underestimate the power of the pick me up adding flowers to your home adds, they need not be expensive but it’s always worth treating yourself, you deserve it!
November is one of my favourite times of the year it’s Peonie season, one of my favourite flowers especially in coral pink!
Get started with my go-to floral tips:
Have the right tools and know how, sharp scissors or secateurs, trim your flowers (no green leaves below the water ) and change the water regularly to make sure your flowers last longer.
Choose the right vessel for your blooms, I like to have a good selection of different shapes and sizes (always predominantly handmade) that are great for displaying all kind of blooms.
An interesting vase doesn’t always need flowers in it, so think about shapes, textures and colours. I love to collect ceramics, group them together in a collection with or without flowers
Flowers are beautiful but think outside the box, greenery and foliage is long lasting and just as striking, also I love an edible arrangement form the garden, think herbs and other greenery and also edible flowers. Preserved or dried flowers make for an everlasting arrangement.
When arranging your flowers move the stems around and let the flowers do the talking follow the shapes and the way they fall. It’s all about composition, so think about scale, shapes and heights.
