Your Spring Letterbox Flowers

Your Spring Letterbox Flowers

Hiya!
Hannah here! Thank you for your recent order, or if this is a gift, congratulations on having people around you with great taste!
The beauty of letterbox flowers is that you can choose however you'd like to display them; make a bouquet with them all in 1 vase or you can split them up into smaller vases to make multiple mini displays! 
If you'd like to make the same bouquet as me, I've mapped out the steps to make it super easy for you to replicate our display at home. I use shears, but you can do this all with strong scissors too (you may have trouble trimming the palm spear, but I like to keep that one tall!)
STEP 1
Carefully take the stems out of the box. Dried flowers can be very fragile so make sure you do this delicately. Grab a vase, mine is 20cm tall with a 6cm neck width.
STEP 2
Starting with the stems that don't need trimming, add the palm spear and 2 stems of oat. The oat may need trimming slightly to be the same height as the palm spear. This will make the backdrop to the bouquet!
 
STEP 3
Next, we want to include some colour. Add 1 stem of the purple statice and a few stems of the lavender - doesn't it smell amazing?
 
STEP 4
Now we start working towards the centre of the vase to create almost a V-shape. You can do this however you like, making the stems shorter each time you add one in. 
I use all the neutrals colours now - the oat and the wheat. That way the colourful stems really pop against them! 
Trim the oat and wheat down to be approximately 2-3cm shorter than the last stems and add to the display.
 
STEP 5
Next, start loading up the colourful stems. Trim and add more lavender and statice and add to the vase. 
 
STEP 6
Start layering more of the colours. When adding the pink phalaris stems I like to keep these a range of heights so that they're not all bunched in one place. 
 
STEP 7
There's no rhyme or reason here - continue adding stems, mixing up the colours but making sure that they keep getting slightly shorter each time which will keep lots of layers in your bouquet. 
 
STEP 8
I always leave the orange stem until last - it's very delicate to be careful when handling and trimming it. This one takes pride of place in the centre of the bouquet!
 
STEP 9
Sit back and marvel at your new display - she's lovely isn't she?
Find a space for it and it can sit pretty for the next 1-2 years. Remember, dried flowers are delicate so keep in a place where it isn't going to be moved or touched a lot! 
(They also don't need water!)
 
I hope you love them and I can't wait to see your bouquets! Please tag me on Instagram so I can see how you get on!
