Bouquet idea: wintry tulips

Bring the sun into your home

Tulips are back, and we're really rather grateful. They're just what we need in January with the grey skies and rainy weather. They're available in plenty of vibrant colours, but this season we're combining white tulips with other white flowers for an icy beautiful effect.

How to make it

Select the finest white blooms you can find, taking height differences into account. Choose different delicate petals, rustling tulips and other exciting-looking flowers.

Make sure the vase is nice and clean, then fill it with some water. Don't be too generous, otherwise the tulips will droop from overdrinking.

Trim the flowers diagonally, and arrange them individually in the vase. Work clockwise to create a traditional Biedermeier style, or place them haphazardly for a relaxed field bouquet effect.

Once you've finished, stand back and admire your icy spring bouquet. The day suddenly looks a lot brighter.
