The Flowers for the Window

Hedgerow blossom makes a striking suspended starburst. Using forsythia and genista, wrap a circular moss bundle in chicken wire and suspend using fishing wire. Post your cut blossom branches through the chicken wire frame (this keeps them in place), until the metal form is covered in blooms. Water the moss using a long spouted watering can. Maybe don’t water the moss if you’re worried about the drips on the furniture!

 

For something similar for a table top, fill a plastic pot with moss and wrap the whole thing in chicken wire. Post your stems into the mossy pot.

The Flowers in the Falcon Small Tray

This is a celebration of Spring colour. Using the Falcon Small Tray and Niwaki Long Flower Frog, Jenni chose Icelandic poppies, ranunculus including buds and tulips for a Japanese inspired arrangement. Stick the kenzan to the base of the vessel using floral fix. Build up using the larger flowers cut shorter and in the foreground, with the smaller buds standing tall and sculptural at the back. This is a lovely clash with the red enamel and the peach poppies.

Reflex the Tulip petals

TOP TIP

Reflex the Tulip petals

Jenni and Falcon: a match made in heaven. And Jenni’s secret weapon: chicken wire or a pin frog so you don’t need to stuff the vessels full of flowers. This is a tip I will most definitely be using. Wild blackthorn blossom and poppies in a utensil pot; yellow ranunculus in a pinch pot; tulips (with the petals reflexed) in a tumbler.

A LITTLE BIT ABOUT JENNI BLOOM

I know. We wish that were her real actual name. Jenni Bloom (www.jennibloom.com) is a Hampshire based florist, working on weddings, events and editorial projects both nationally and internationally. Her style references 17th century Dutch painting in its formality and atmosphere but is underscored by a touch of the whimsical and carefree. Her work is characterised by a celebration of the beauty of the seasons. Jenni was ably assisted during The Hambledon install by Carrie Lavers (who, in normal life, is a photographer www.carrielaversphotography.co.uk). Just saying, you might have a wedding to organise. Or some such.
