Bright colours and heavy textural forms are the flowers and foliage to reach for. Willow mixed in with Magnolia and Maple foliage makes for the perfect base. To this round thing out with a few stems of rustic or deep claret red Hydrangeas. Nothing says winter more than robust red and green King Proteas and a cluster of Rosehips to diffuse their weighty appearance.
Although a summer flower, we love to add in a few stems of full-bodied red Roses, but don’t scatter them, mass group for more impact. If the design still needs a bit of movement and a boast, our go too is long tendrils of Ivy. Although a winter inspired base, with a few additions Holiday and Christmas decorating couldn’t be easier. Throw in fairy lights, add a few Poinsettias, white Lilies, Roses, Snow and Holly berries and instantly holiday decorating is a breeze.
