1. Tall design
Make the most of the long dramatic spears, by using a tall tapered vase;
Remove any lower leaves, cut on the diagonal and then add a stem at a time, making sure they are in each corner and in the centre of the vase. Twist and angle so you can see flowers from each side. I finished off the design with some lime green dried spikes to add more height and movement – any long material would do the same – such as grasses.
2. Low compact design
Perfect for smaller spaces – or when the lower flowers have dried out;
Remove any lower leaves and dried flowers, and cut down the stems on an angle so the blooms appear just above the top of the vase. I added stones to help position the stems then add each stem so spread through the vase with the blooms facing outwards.
