Light and Lace – Airy Flower Arrangement
with Queen Anne’s Lace, Snapdragons, Lisianthus and Statice
This week’s quirky box is a mix of exciting textures that will be a blast to arrange, and to watch evolve over the week. There are tall spears of snowy snapdragons and lisianthus, paired back with billowy stems of Queen Anne’s Lace. And for a sharp contrast, purple statice as a filler. Their tiny papery petals and branchy stems give an interesting twist to this week’s selection.
A fun fact about snapdragons is that they are geotropic. That means they bend away from gravity, so if you place them at an angle in your vase, in a day or two, the blooms will swoop upwards, creating great shapes in your vase!
The key to arranging this week is to keep your blooms light and airy, so don’t be afraid to layer, adding flowers at all different heights. Due to the specific varieties this week, your blooms may need waking up when you receive them. Simply snip a good 2 cm off the ends of the stems and pop straight into fresh water (extra points for flower food!) and they will perk right back up in about 24 hours
