DIY Wildflower Bouquet

All the beautiful summer flowers from Princess Madeleine’s wedding inspired me to make a flower arrangement for our patio. Sweden is covered in lovely wildflowers that are in full-bloom this time a year. I visited my aunt and uncle – who live in what I think of as the “Swedish Dream” – a cute pitoresque red and white cottage with farmland, barns and acres of forest. The estate has been in the family for generations; my uncle’s parents ran the farm professionally with cows, pigs and farming until 1967. Now they only use the land to grow vegetables to be self-sufficient. I found a myriad of lovely summer wildflowers on their land including Cow-Parsley (Hundkäx), Garden Lupin (blomsterlupin), straw and fern that I picked and used for for my summer bouquet.

You need:

  • Wildflowers – greens as well as colour
  • Rope
