This year’s British Flower week runs from the Monday 13th June to Saturday 19th June, and if you are unfamiliar it’s a time when we hold a celebration of British cut flowers and florists. The New Covent Garden Flower Market conceived this groundbreaking campaign in 2013. This is where florists go to buy their flowers, foliage, plants and sundries. For more information please visit their website @http://www.britishflowersweek.com/.
If you would like to bring some floral designs into your home here are a few tips from the Houzz website, they state not to just chose any vase to display your flowers, but to make sure that it suits the style and height of your bouquet.
If you have picked some small buds or blooms they suggest using a bud vase with a separate section for each flower. If you don’t have one of these then you could check the Not on the High Street website http://www.notonthehighstreet.com/home/home-accessories/vases - they have a great selection of vases.
A great way to bring coherence to a room is to match your flowers to your soft furnishings; for example if you have orange cushions then orange mini-Gerberas or Orange Lily flowers would work really well with this.
Reflect your home’s style in your choice of flowers and vase – for example if your home is decorated in a vintage style you could buy the “Sweetie Shop Vintage Flower Vase” from Not on the High Street, this could be filled with old English white and soft pink style roses, poppies and a pot of pink hydrangeas can work really well.
