Wrap up warm and brave the cold and ice to get to the florist. On your way, think about what colours could cheer up the mood at home. We’ve opted for a lively combination of orange tulips with the blue and purple of hyacinth and viburnum, finished with delicately coloured narcissi and grasses. Hello bouquet of cheerfulness!
