Hello Sunshine! – Sunflower Arrangement

with Gum, Statice and Wattle

Has winter got you craving a little getaway from everyday life? Well we’re bringing some rustling rustic beauty to your doorstep this week. Vibrant sunflowers bring a ray of sunshine into your home all on their own, but teamed up with billowing wattle, fluffy stalks of statice and sweet-smelling gum, it’s a late afternoon stroll down a country lane – in a vase!

It’s one of our favourite rustic combinations, and easy as cherry pie to arrange. Simply drop in a backdrop of greenery into a vase. Add your sunflowers at different heights, with their showy faces facing forward. Fill in the gaps with layers of statice, popping in your gorgeous wattle to add extra sunshine to your arrangement.
