Hang Flowers from Your Mantelpiece!
‘The room being small for the number of guests, there were no available corners for groups of pot plants…Trails of ivy hung down from the mantelshelf, over the sheet of glass which, in this instance, concealed the fireplace.. From a hook just under the shelf I suspended by yellow ribbons a basketful of yellow tulips, Roman hyacinths, begonia leaves and mimosa.’
Constance Jacobs, ‘Flower Decorations’, The Girls’s Own Paper, December 19th 1891.
