Harriet Parry, floral stylist and artist, demonstrates how to make February less bleak
Estimated reading time: 2 minutes

February is a transitional month, with the festive season and New Year firmly behind us and the promise of Spring on its way. The month was named after the Roman Februalia – a month-long festival of purification and atonement - and for many of us it can feel like a bit of a sunless slog.

This is why we teamed up with top floral stylist and artist, Harriet Parry to share some simple and ingenious ways to brighten up our homes this February in a very special online workshop inviting everyone to ‘Bring in the Blooms’.

From vibrant wreaths (like the one above) to alternative garlands and tabletop vignettes, Harriet brings fresh-cut flowers to life in innovative and easy-to-follow ways to help inject colour and originality into the home. Picking from a lush palette of seasonal flowers including tulips, stocks, limonium, gypsophila, craspedia, alstroemeria, carnations and delphiniums, Harriet selects blooms for their mood-boosting colour, scents and longevity, and blends them with varieties perfect for drying and reusing.

“Who says February has to be bleak?” says Harriet Parry, floral stylist and artist. “We’ve nearly made it to the end of winter and spring is on its way! I had a riot picking out some of my favourite flowers to create pieces that are guaranteed to bring a sense of fun and playfulness to your home. Of course, flowers can look stunning arranged simply in a vase, but if you’re looking for slightly unexpected ways to display blooms, this workshop is for you.”
