5 Foolproof Ways To Style Flowers

Whether you love big, bold hydrangeas or eagerly await peony season each summer, there’s no denying a vase of flowers adds the finishing touch to a room. If you’re not blessed with the arranging skills of a florist or are apprehensive of where to start, we’ve singled out the top five flowers that look so good on their own they are foolproof.

Peonies

Probably Instagram’s most snapped bloom; peony season only lasts through to July, so make sure get in on the action fast. The stems that start out as tightly wrapped balls and bloom into mille feuille-esque petals look best in big bunches and styled in a simple vase. Add a little eucalyptus leaf for a hint of green, which works beautifully against the pretty pink hues.

 

Hydrangeas

A favourite for weddings, the sheer size of these blooms mean you only have to buy a few for them to look good – thankfully, as the price does rack up. Stick to the golden rule of odd numbers – we like three of five – and style them individually in a row of recycled glass vases or as a group stacked on top of your favourite coffee table books.

 

Cow Parsley

You may not be familiar with the name but you will have seen this delicate foliage everywhere. And ideal choice if you prefer a neutral or monochrome colour palette, these dainty white flowers look just right in an oversized apothecary vase.

 

Ranunculas

The cool girl’s alternative to roses, these rosette-style blooms look best bunched in big groups. For a classic look, choose white and style in a simple bowl, or go for a more vintage, rustic vibe by stacking individual stems in mini bottle vases.

 

Stocks

Stocks offer a spicy, clove-like scent so not only will they look gorgeous but they’ll make your home smell great, too.  A tall jar vase is a must to complement their tall stems and keep them standing upright but we love the idea of lining it with lemon slices for a look that belies even the most amateur of flower arranging skills.
