BLOOM­ING LOVELY

House Beautiful (UK) - - Seasonal Inspiration -

If you break any stems while pre­par­ing a bunch for a vase, don’t dis­card them. In­stead, put them to good use as a table­top dis­play. Sim­ply trim off any ex­cess stem or re­main­ing leaves and float the flow­er­head in a shal­low bowl of wa­ter. They’ll only last a day or so, but in that time, they’ll make a strik­ing cen­tre­piece.

Round tray, £16.50, Gar­den Trad­ing. For a sim­i­lar flo­ral-print bowl, try the Botanic Gar­den col­lec­tion, £87 for six, Port­meirion. Crim­ple side plate, £35 for four, Loaf. Find a sim­i­lar fab­ric at Cath Kid­ston (this is one of her ar­chive de­signs)
