3. Make a mantlepiece display
This wonderfully wild display is designed to fill the space above a wide mantelpiece. Start with the longer stems, like the foliage and pussy willow branches, looking for a ‘V’ shape to create some structure. Hannah’s top tip? If you’re not a fan of floral oasis, use a metal pin holder to secure these at the bottom of the vase.
“Passing a bunch of garden blooms on a sideboard is like getting a small floral hug.”
When you’re happy with the first stage, add your flowers one by one to create a burst of colour in the centre of the arrangement. Hannah’s mixed pink poppies in with the orange geraniums and purple fritillaries – relaxed shapes that suit the country garden feel.
