Natural elegance A vase which mirrors the natural shape of the flowers is very complementary and adds true elegance and grace to the arrangement

Flowers with a strong and simple shape such as scented lilies, long-stemmed roses and gladioli look stunning displayed on their own or with a few stems of foliage to complement.

Cottage garden charm For flowers that look like they've just been picked from the garden, choose a pale-coloured jug and allow the blooms to billow over the rim.

Soft shapes, pastel colours and billowy petals are characteristics of many flowers grown in a traditional cottage garden, and just the thing to create a bouquet with rustic charm.

Vintage delight Use a selection of vintage glassware and fill with little posies for a fun display on a table, across a mantelpiece or even as wedding favours

Varieties of flowers with petite buds and blooms are perfect for creating darling mini posies - single stems of sweetheart roses and freesias with sprays of buds would be perfect.
