We want to make this Easter at home extra-special with some spring inspired tablescaping that will make you smile when gathered around the table! This blog post is dedicated to spring blooms, with flower arranging from Willow Crossley and her step-by-step guide.
Follow her video or keep scrolling with a handy how-to guide. We’d love to see your creations too, so please share what you make on social and tag us in #mymonsoon
Start by conditioning your flowers. Cut the bottom of the stem on an angle, remove any excess leaves and then give them a good drink before you start arranging. In a dream world, pick the flowers the day before you want to arrange with and let them rest and drink overnight.
Take your potted bulbs out of the plastic pots and put them into the pots of your choice (the glass jar/bowls/terracotta pots) If you are using a large bowl, add some gravel or git for drainage before you put the plants in. Cover the top of the soil with moss.
The number of stems you need per vase will depend on the size of your vases but keep in mind that they want to be one and a half times the height of the vase.
Keep the water topped up and fresh. Keep out of direct sunlight and extreme heat.
When you arrange them all down the table, don’t put them in poker straight lines. Jiggle them about so they feel relaxed. Mix in the vases of cut flowers with the bulbs. Think about adding candles to add colour and height.
Scatter the quail eggs among the vases and pots on the table. I love resting the eggs to top of the moss on the larger bowls of bulbs.
For more colour, tying up your napkins with bright ribbons is lovely and finished the table off beautifully.
Remember to water your bulbs every few days. If you want to force them to come out quicker, keep them somewhere warm – if you want to slow the flowering down, keep them somewhere very cool.
Enjoy your table and Happy Easter!
