- Gold spray paint
Spray gold paint onto sprigs of ivy with berries (do it somewhere well ventilated). Leave to dry overnight.
Attach ribbon round folded napkins, securing with tape at the back. Place the sprayed ivy as shown.
To make the centrepiece, we planted hellebores and kalanchoe in a bronze trough, added a moss mulch, then pushed cut pieces of asparagus fern and butcher’s broom into the compost in the container. The display lasts for two/three weeks if kept moist.
- Add cuttings of ivy and other greenery to your table for a rustic yet elegant look
