Celebrating the Art of Flowers with Willow Crossley
How do you choose which flowers to feature in an arrangement? Talk us through your process
Do you have a favourite colour palette? For example, bright colours vs neutral
When choosing vases, does this inform the flowers you use in the arrangement?
For someone with little experience of flower arranging, what would be your number one tip?
Always start small. Start with something like a jam jar or a bud vase where you don’t need too many stems. Find a local grower and play around with seasonal flowers; they are always the most beautiful and last the longest.
Don’t be daunted by flowers, they are more hardy than they look and there is no right or wrong, go with what you love. The more you play around, the more you’ll love it.
