Create a floral still life yourself
Just like painters, florists have their signatures. So do you! And the beauty of this flower still life is that you can turn it into an authentic showpiece that's entirely to your taste. Will you choose flowers in bright colors, or will you keep it quiet and serene? And do you make a still life for yourself, or do you dedicate it to someone you love? As Alexander says: "Everyone can make a still life. It is all about the story you want to tell and the moment you want to tell it.

  • A vase or pot that matches the still life you have in mind
  • Flowers of your choice with long stems, such as hydrangea, dahlia, tulip, eremurus, sandersonia, gloriosa, wisteria, sunflower, and peony
