Who better to teach us how to create a stunning centrepiece than Paula Pryke, who has 17 books about the craft under her belt and been awarded an OBE for her services to the floral design industry. In this video, Paula will teach you how to make a basket arrangement, using a twig wreath, a pot, some chicken wire and a mix of spring flowers and foliage, although as she says, you can use any flowers in this arrangement. 

Arrangement from 'Flowers Every Day' by Paula Pryke (£25, Jacqui Small LLP).
