Make this a super-cool yule with fresh flowers, crisp table linen, sparkling glass and gleaming silver accessories.
You will need:
1 Savoy cabbage
silver spray paint
2. Put the cabbage on the paper or the board and, wearing disposable gloves, spray all over with silver paint. Leave to dry for several hours. Meanwhile, cut the floral foam in half with the knife, the, 10 minutes before you’re ready to continue, soak in cold water.
3. Put the soaked halves of foam into the hole in the cabbage. Use the knife to shave the top corners of the foam to make it easier to push the roses in at an angle.
4. Cut the rose stems so they are about 2 in (5cm) in length. Push the roses into the foam starting at the centre and gradually moving outward. If you keep the foam moist this arrangement should last for several days.

Colours inspired by nature - greeny blues, earthy browns, creamy whites and a touch of silver - combine to create an elegant, relaxed setting.
