One up from fresh flow­ers, this gar­land can be used to dress ta­bles time and again. We used rose buds, mi­mosa, flax, ma­tri­caria, daisies, he­lichry­sum, broom, del­phini­ums, poppy heads, phalaris, bunny tails, eu­ca­lyp­tus, gyp­sophila, oat stems and stat­ice. Cut all the flow­ers to a length of 10cm and fix together groups of the same flower with florist wire. Take a length of gar­land and wire in some eu­caply­tus stems. Start­ing at one end, push a group of flow­ers into the gar­land and se­cure in place with florist wire. Grad­u­ally build up with flow­ers, mix­ing up for full­ness. Fin­ish with three groups of flow­ers pushed in the op­po­site way to hide the wiring. Grapevine gar­land, £7.20 for 9ft, The Essen­tials Company.
