In the latest Outdoor Issue,DECO heads out into the garden to find inspiration for Wild Posies.
We encourage you to pick your own posies for your dinner tables, entrance halls and for next to your bed.

Flower Arranging 101

  • Firstly, you have to create a framework for your arrangement. Build your arrangement foundation with foliage in an asymmetrical shape that’s pleasing.
  • Traditionally the highest point will be at the back, but play with different points leaning to the left or right. Be careful not too over do it with too much foliage to ensure some room for your blooms.
  • For your larger flowers, cut the stems at different lengths so some blooms are low and others extend. Take your time, experimenting until it looks good.

Let the images below inspire you to create blooming marvellous arrangements!
