HOW TO CREATE BLOOMING EASY FLOWER DISPLAYS
Want to learn how to make some beautiful flower arrangements to get you set for Spring? Well look no further.
On a sunny morning earlier this week, we received a couple of Bloom & Wild boxes through our Covent Garden letterbox - what a great idea! We decided to create some pretty displays to brighten up our store, but rather than just popping them all straight into a vase we decided to get a little crafty, and in a few easy steps you'll be able to do just the same.
What you'll need: Glass bottles and jars, a selection of blooms, water, scissors and a little bit of imagination.
Step 1: Raid your kitchen cupboards or head to your local charity shop to find a selection of glass jars and bottles - the more mismatched the better. Most of ours didn't cost more than a pound each - bargain! Give them a quick clean and then fill them up with a little water.
Step 2: Spread out your flowers so you can see what you've got to work with. We love our pink and purple stems, but the possibilities are endless - think daffodils, wild flowers, roses, tulips - anything that takes your fancy!
Step 3: Now for the fun part! Start arranging your flowers, mixing between single stems and small bunches. Remove any leaves that sit below the water line to keep the arrangements looking awesome and the water fresh.
Step 4: Now it's time to display your colourful flower arrangements around your home or office. Try grouping different height jars together, popping them in high shelves or lining them up along your windows. And there you have it! How blooming easy.
