Bouquet recipe: bye-bye Christmas tree, hello Christmas bouquet!

You will need

It might not be a Christmas tree, but you’re still dealing with something substantial. When choosing a vase for this bouquet recipe, bear in mind that amaryllis’s stems are pretty chunky. A wide and tall vase works best. 

Work in layers

A hydrangea base, a lisianthus body and then upwards with orchid and amaryllis. We bet you haven’t had such an eccentric bouquet on display all year!

It takes getting used to

Just like the Christmas tree when it’s newly placed, it takes a little while to become accustomed to this floral spectacle. It’s also quite a unique bouquet recipe. Place the flowers in a peaceful setting where they can shine to their hearts’ content. This December statement will soon feel like it’s always been there.
