Silk Flowers (Ranunculus)

Today's floral arrangement is one of my favourites for full-on winter colour. This display consists of silk ranunculus in several deep, gorgeous winter-flowing colours in a huge fruit bowl. I have used hypericum berries to add texture plus a mixture of fake grasses to add greenery.

To recreate this, you will need:

7 ranunculus posies
7 hypericum berry stems
Everlasting grasses in toning colours
Large pottery basin

To start, fill your bowl with your chosen ballast such as marbles (or clean, dry gravel) and arrange your stems to create a display which you are happy with.

The fabulous hypericum berries might well have anything up to 20 inches of stem so trim to the same height as your ranunculus.

You will find that some stems will need trimming as many fake grasses are usually about 12 inches long. A few blades of grass can be left slightly longer to give a feathery, wispy overfill effect but no more than three or four. You don't want your display to look messy and overgrown!

Remember that every flower I use in my displays are silk but you could use real flowers and greenery if you like the arrangement but are not keen on fake florals. I hope to inspire you to have flowers in your home all year round.

Have a lovely day.
