As a flower arranger myself, I was interested in watching this, I must say Sarah that you made it look very easy to do, which from my experience of hand tide has never been the case however I will try this myself from my garden not for a bride but to see if I can achieve something similar to your more than beautiful arrangement it really was terrific to watch you be so creative, I am inspired by your approach to flower displays you make them feel achievable. Thank you.

Well worth adding to the border

These are brilliant, great in a vase and in slightly dappled shade in the border, beautiful.
