This month the lovely Lu Diamond shares with us her favourite Halloween trick. Find out how she turns her beautiful blooms into an amazing Halloween bouquet!
Halloween is the perfect excuse to dress over the top and make an impressive Halloween bouquet slash light feature! Assuming you have already organised your costume, untangle your fairy lights, find an appropriate sized vase and select an area in your house where the installation can be best admired.
Depending on the scale of your arrangement will determine how much you will need to hunt and gather! Gathering up foliage and branches has some rules – your own, friends, family and possibly your neighbour’s gardens all can do with some pruning. Stealing number 81’s perfect cherry blossom branches is a big no no!
Start to place branches in your vase and hang anywhere possible with twine or soft thin wire. Once you are happy with your branch and greenery you can hang the fairy lights in and around your wild creation.
Place flowers in last. For my flowers I choose brunt orange roses and deep purple Cala Lilies.
Drape branches, leaves or petals around the tabletop and vase then pop tea lights amongst, don’t let the masterpiece catch on fire!
The bigger and weirder the better!
HAPPY HALLOWEEN X
