Bouquet recipe: a colourful bouquet with Amaryllis

You will need

  • Asparagus
  • Rose
  • Amaryllis flowers

How to make it

This bouquet works best if you have an assistant. The stems of Amaryllis are quite thick and you could do with some extra muscle power because of the size of the bouquet. Ask your lovely neighbour — or your favourite florist — to lend you a helping hand. Make sure you choose a vase that is big and sturdy as well, to bear the weight of the flowers.

In terms of the colour palette we have opted for brilliant seasonal colours: pink, red, dark red and purple, with just a hint of green here and there. You can buy dyed flowers from the florist, or opt for natural tones.

If you're having a go at assembling the bouquet yourself, then approach it just like any other bouquet, but on a slightly larger scale. Watch our handy flower bouquet tutorial for tips before you get started. The best one we can give you is to turn the bouquet whilst arranging. This will make the result picture-perfect from every angle.
