Screen Shot 2017-02-21 at 15.15.21Soho farmhouse recently played the perfect host to a country wedding with elegance. The exclusive retreat set over 100 acres of green Oxfordshire countryside, boasts stunning views and detailed interiors like no other. Working closely with the client we brought their vision of ‘contemporary countryside’ to life with the Nikki Tibbles touch. The final result: A truly Romantic wedding reminiscent of the lush green setting. Screen Shot 2017-02-21 at 15.15.08The couple wed in an industrious barn lined with a bounty of fresh flowers. Loose and blousy, with apricot elements the floral installations stood out against the deep grain wood of the barn.   Screen Shot 2017-02-21 at 15.21.59A bespoke asymmetric Chuppah was created using soft grey olive, mimosa, peonies, roses and sweetly scented stock. Detailed features such as this Kippah flower cart dressed with a garland made from olive and mixed herbs, created a fragrant focal point at the entrance of the ceremony. Screen Shot 2017-02-21 at 15.15.37The tables for the wedding breakfast were dressed in an eclectic array of bud vases containing blousy peonies and soft blush roses – accented with olive foliage and herbs. Hand selected peony heads adorned the tables, left to bloom in our London studio until their bright fuchsia heads turned a beautiful shade of pale apricot.   Screen Shot 2017-02-21 at 15.14.13Screen Shot 2017-02-21 at 15.14.44

The sun is shining and spring flowers are in abundance, making it the perfect time to bring the outside in with a few floral arrangements around your home.

When it comes to getting the perfect arrangement that not only looks great but lasts well too, who better to turn to for advice than Nikki herself? Read on to discover Nikki’s top tips for flower arranging.

wild_at_heart_arrangement1

What to consider

Which room will your arrangement be displayed in? Consider the colour, style and texture of that room. Also think about the vases you have to work with, both aesthetically and practically. For instance, a tall cylinder vase will suit tall, structured flowers like lilies, whereas smaller vases are great for delicate flowers like sweetpeas and narcissi.

wild_at_heart_arrangements

Buy seasonally

Always the key to getting the best from your flowers, if you buy seasonally they’ll look better, last longer and you’ll also get the best value for your money. If you aren’t sure what to pick, your florist will be able to advise you on the latest seasonal flowers.

Which flowers?

It’s important to consider the colour, form and texture of the flowers you want to display and which ones will work well together. Generally, I wouldn’t use more than three types of flowers together in one arrangement, as any more than this starts to look messy. I’d also pair flowers with similar shaped heads together. For example, round-headed peonies look great with roses and spears of delphinium with stocks. Alternatively, a mass of one type of flower always looks effective and makes a contemporary statement.

How to arrange?

Cut the stems of the flowers on an angle and place in cool water as soon as you get them home. Fill your chosen vase/jug/bottle/vessel three-quarters full with water and add any food sachets that may have come with the flowers. If you don’t have any flower food add a sterilising tablet to keep the water clean. Once you’ve cut your stems, remove any leaves below the water line as these will rot and cause bacteria in the water. Start your arrangement with foliage at the base and if you’re not using foliage then start with your biggest flowers. Build the arrangement stem by stem and try to spiral them into the vase. Finally, just make sure your arrangement looks good from all the angles it will be visible.

Fresher for longer

To keep your arrangement looking its best, place it away from heat and out of direct sunlight. Also give the vase fresh water every couple of days and if you can, re-cut the stems. These simple steps will keep your flowers looking fresher for longer.
