Did you catch our Spring Seasonal Flower Guide on Tuesday? So many amazing flowers + colors are available in Spring so we just had to make our own little bouquet using all the flowers we had from the flower guide! And what’s even more great is that making your own bouquet is super easy. We think making a little bloom to hold for your engagement photos, or having a flower party with your bridesmaids before the wedding (if you’re the savvy type!) would make this DIY super helpful. Here’s how we did it…
What You’ll Need:
• Floral Tape
• Floral Scissors
• Ribbons (to wrap your bouquet with)
• Flowers – we chose heather, sweet pea, mimosa acacia, clematis, maiden hair fern, lilac, ranunculus, hellebores, pieris japonica, anemones, double tulips, lavender, Icelandic poppies, delphiniums, jasmine vine and, peonies (find the scoop on which flower is which here)
Step 1: Start with your larger fillers and any key focal pieces (in this case, that King Protea) and arrange at competing angles until the base of your bouquet begins to take shape.
Step 2: Add in loose vines and non-focal blooms (like hellebores and clematis) and once your bouquet starts to look a bit more full, assess the overall feel and make any necessary tweaks to the composition.
Step 3: Next, work in your smaller principal flowers (anemones, ranunculus, etc.) focusing mostly on the front of your bouquet.
Step 4: Finalize the look by adding a key piece or two to the front/center and fill in any gaps or holes with a textural filler or clip of foliage. Then wrap the stems with some pretty ribbons and voilà! Your bouquet is ready :)
Easy and gorgeous bouquet DIY, right? If you make your own bouquet, we’d love to see how it turns out, so please share on Instagram along with the hashtag #GreenWeddingShoesDIY
