Get some floral decoration ideas from stylist Selina Lake.
Teaming up with the UK’s garden retailer, Dobbies, author and stylist Selina Lake has proven exactly how many various floral arrangements will be made in the house with a choice of spring and summer season blooms.
With flowers as well as royal wedding favourites, peonies, roses and foxgloves, and also eucalyptus, white wax flowers and astrantia, you are able to build a great floral display to complement the interiors of yours.
‘To achieve all of these looks, you have to first state the flowers by getting rid of the smaller leaves on the stem, and any sharp thorns,’ advises Selina.’ Snip the ends diagonally and plunge right into a bucket of water that is cool until you’re prepared to produce your display.’

One Table centrepiece

Selina says…’ Pick a very low vessel with a large opening and ensure it is watertight, then simply cut a portion of oasis to slip inside the vessel and soak well in drinking water. If required, hold in position by using florist tape. Beginning with the foliage, start filling the oasis with a base level of greenery. Follow with your selected flower stems, remembering to continue turning the vessel and filling out all of the sides for a healthy display. Help save the most delicate flowers till last to stay away from bruising the petals. The set up may be calm and casual, so keep on adding flowers until you are satisfied with the way it looks.’
Two Mantlepiece Styling

Selina says…’ A plastic-free and good method to reuse glass bottles is actually using them as vases to display stems and take a set on a shelf or even mantlepiece. Right here I have added spools of silk ribbons and embroidered trim along with a few of really vintage botanical prints. This’s a great way to make a single lot of flowers go further.’

Three Silks and muslin

Selina says…’ Display a statement vase of flowers on a table dressed with layered muslin fabric, loosely draped and decorated with silk ribbons, in delicate tones of blush peach and pink. That idea is effective when decorating a venue for a party or perhaps wedding.’
Four Hand tied bouquet

Selina says…’ Start with a starting flower – I being used a lovely apricot foxglove – then add an additional stem of an alternative floral at a small angle, switch the bouquet slightly and repeat. Keep adding foliage and flowers at exactly the same angle, slightly twist away the bouquet every time. When you are pleased with the arrangement tie the stems together securely, then snip the ends so they’re all of exactly the same length. The bouquet must then stand in place on a level area. Add ribbons for extra prettiness.’

Five Garden summer wreath

Selina says…’ In order to create your own personal floral summer wreath, begin with an oasis wreath ring soaked with water and fill the base with foliage. Right here I used white wax flowers, astrantia and eucalyptus, then cut the stems short, and included a mix of peonies and roses. Use green florist wire or perhaps pretty ribbon to create a hook for hanging the wreath of yours. Mist frequently with water to extend the blooms.’
