Successful flower arranging

I wondered if anyone has a problem setting up a bouquet or an arrangement of flowers in a vase after receiving them – mine always looked ‘plonked’ in a vase, and never look as nice as when received, beautifully arranged with matching tissue paper.

To set up your display, I have now read that the best way to preserve the look of a bouquet is firstly to lay the whole thing flat, remove the paper, then separate the flowers – you need to see what you’re working with and work out how many you have for your vase, then decide which ones will be your stars (bigger, prettier flowers) and which are the fillers (smaller, fluffier bunches).
