This past weekend we did the florals for one of our full plan brides. She didn't really have anything specific that she wanted - she wanted it to be romantic yet simple. Her colors were sangria and green - so we decided for all white flowers with some pops of green. When we got our flowers, the hanging amaranthus that we thought was going to be green, was actually a sangria color - so it changed our plans a bit, but I think it actually turned out better in the end!
What you will need:
- Baby's Breath
- Had some leftover pink gypsophila from our Saturday wedding which worked out great - if we didn't have it, we would have used the other bunch of baby's breath
- 1 bunch of roses ~25 roses
- 1 bunch of tea roses ~25 roses
- Buds of another flower - we used dahlia buds because we had them, hypericum berries is another great option
- hanging amaranthus
- floral tape
- ribbon in your color choice
- hat pins
|Gather your babies breath - 1 pack should do all 10 if you are using another background flower, if not , I would use 2 bunches. You want to make it look wispy - but contained|
|Add 1 or 2 big roses|
|Add 2-3 tea roses|
|Add the buds|
|Add the hanging amaranthus - you have to play with this to get it to hang right. I stripped it of it's leaves and attached it in the middle of the part where it starts to hang|
|Tape it together - hold it upside down - it is much easier! |
|Cut to desired length|
|Here it is ready to be wrapped with ribbon!|
|The final product. We attached them to chairs with hat pins. If you are using the white wooden folding chairs, you can just tie them on - but we did not have them, so we pinned them on!|
It looked really dynamic with ten little bouquets - just the right amount of simple romance!
Happy Friday everyone - hope you all have a great Friday!
