If we’re honest, we personally like simple and loosely structured flower arrangements in whites and greens, with scattered foliage.  Maybe with the odd splash of colour to suit the room - almost as if you’d wandered into an idealised English garden in early summer and scooped up a selection of what looked nice.

Our orchids follow the same principle, simple and not too rigid looking, often in oval boats and always nicely curved with a good mass of leaves below.

The pictures here show what might be loosely called our ‘house style’, so if you’re after something that looks like the fireworks at the closing ceremony of the Olympics - or involves pine cones and cinnamon sticks - we probably aren’t your people!

A final light-hearted plea.  Whatever you do, please don’t call them ‘faux fleurs’.   It’s just so prim -  the equivalent of calling a certain part of your anatomy a ‘front bottom’…    They’re  fake flowers, and they’re brilliantly useful - embrace the idea!
