Gift Idea 1:
Create the ultimate flower bouquet for your Mum!

Step 1:
Go to a florist and source some flowers! Our favs are orchids, peonies, carnations and baby’s breath!

Tip: Prior to choosing your flowers think of a colour scheme (eg. light pink and dark pink flowers). Choose a couple of different variety pink flowers, add some white flowers, as well as some greenery!

Step 2: Source some brown paper, sticky tape, scissors, rubber band, vase and ribbon!

Step 3: Time to create the flower bouquet! Lay out all of our flowers on the table so that you are able to see what you’re working with. Use your vase as a base to hold the flowers up and start selecting different flowers and placing them in the vase. Add some greenery throughout the flowers and mainly around the outsides of the bunch. Now play around with your flowers to get the perfect positioning!

Step 4: Once all of the flowers are in place, pick up the flowers from the vase, bunch them all together and tie them together with your rubber band. Lay out your brown paper diagonally on the table and roll the bunch of flowers up in it, use your sticky tape to stick the paper together. Congrats! You’ve created the perfect flower bouquet for your Mum, made with love xx
