Dec­o­rat­ing wed­dings, gar­den par­ties and other events with home­grown flow­ers.


A fresh take on the tra­di­tional arch, this cir­cu­lar flo­ral de­sign can be hung from a tree to stand just above the ground or rest on it. Or fix it to an ex­ist­ing cir­cu­lar wire arch. Make a sphag­num moss base in a chicken wire frame. Cut re­quired length of chicken wire about 20cm wide. Bend up the sides and fill with damp moss. Bring op­po­site sides of the mesh down onto the moss, press­ing firmly. Bend the wire frame into a cir­cle. Flow­ers and fo­liage can be wired into the damp moss.
