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.
