    This one box can help create these three following flower displays…

    1.Pine table runner


    Lisa advises. ‘Cut side shoots off your large pine branch and snake these down the centre of the table. Arrange cinnamon sticks, either as singles or bundled, and pine cones in amongst the foliage. Next, place the golden apples and stars within the arrangement. The aim is to create depth and height along the length of your centrepiece. Finish the centrepiece with a fine dusting of Reindeer moss.’

    2. Mantelpiece display

    The same foliage placed on a narrow tray creates a beautiful display for the mantelpiece. Lisa explains, ‘Candlelight is the unsung hero here – natural spacing between the pine allows for masses of tea light votives as well as tall candle sticks.’ For safety reasons, never leave a candle unattended.

    3. Hanging foliage arrangement

    Take a small handful of the pine stems, a sprig of eucalyptus and a single golden apple and fasten them with a piece of twine or string. Dress with a bow and as simple as that you have mini arrangements to dress doorhandles, hang from dining chairs or use as place settings for seasonal parties.
