Styling With Greenery – Three Ways
By investing in excellent quality staples like greenery, buds and vases, you can easily swap out your hero flowers to suit the seasons or changing trends. This will make updating your décor easy and more affordable.
Styling tip 7: Don’t be afraid to cut or bend stems
Bouquets can be made smaller by bending or cutting the stems to suit a smaller vase. This is perfect for a smaller space, such as a bathroom or next to a bed.
Tricks of the Trade
When selecting your flowers, try arranging them in your hand first. By doing this you can add or take away flowers without worrying about them not sitting quite right in the vase.
Once you are happy with your selection, add them to your vase one stem at a time, starting with the biggest stem/branch.
While arranging your flowers, you may notice that the stems are all different lengths. There is a very simple way to work out what length you need to suit your vase.
Sit the vase on the edge of a table, hold up your flowers to where you want them to sit – that way you will know where you need to cut or bend the stem.
