Gerberas are perfect for creating a beautiful sleek look. Yet the robust flower still always has something playful and cheerful about it. Add different colours and shapes together and create height differences. The stark lines of the vase make the contrast even greater. It looks like the gerberas are being lifted up by the sparkling purple statice. The happy gerbera also looks great in a coloured vase, a glass vase or a small vase for individual flowers. Give the bouquet pride of place in the centre of the table!
