The great Easter indoors and outdoors; Special feature.

WE love fresh flowers (hint, hint boys!) as they bring a touch of Spring freshness indoors and can really transform a room..

And, as we've found out this week, for just a few pounds you can brighten up your whole home this Easter.

We took six bunches of flowers costing from just pounds 1.89 to pounds 5 and had great fun arranging them in our favourite vases.

Here's our six clever ways to make even the simplest flowers give your home the wow factor:


Make a stunning table centrepiece and they look great on lower coffee tables. We can't believe that for less than pounds 2 we made two pretty arrangements from these Chrysanthemums. Chrysanthemums pounds 1.89


With pretty bows, string other trimmings, you can create a perfect table centre for your Easter feast. Save up different sized jars and then arrange flowers in small bunches or make a feature of pretty single stems such as a Gerbera. Mixed Flower Bouquet pounds 3



Roses are so versatile. You can float them in goldfish bowls or leave stems long and arrange them in a tall vase. We cut these pretty pink roses short to fit perfectly in our cute blue vase - ideal for a windowsill, table centrepiece or on a table in the hallway. Roses pounds 3


This mixed bouquet was perfectly arranged so we didn't need to do anything but choose an elegant vase. Perfect for those who don't feel confident arranging themselves. All you need do is trim the stems. Large Mixed Flower Bouquet pounds 5

DOUBLE UP We decided to make a feature of the cute fluffy easter egg in this bouquet and create a more minimalist arrangement so it would stand out. Two arrangements for the price of one again on this one. Mixed Flower Bouquet pounds 3

PICK OF THE BUNCH Tulips are such gorgeous natural flowers with a mind of their own. They were standing to attention just before the shoot but then decided to spread out. They work well in a goldfish bowl, jug type vase or just as they are. Tulips pounds 1.89
