The technique I think I struggle with the most when putting together arrangments is color placement. Working with so many shades and colors tends to drive me a little nuts because I always seem to struggle with pulling together a cohesive look at the end. Chelsea, of course makes it look incredibly easy and I’m so happy she breaks everything down by color and amount of stems. I always finding myself buying a lot more than I ultimately need too.
For the Bridal Bouquet:
10 red/white anemone stems
3 full pink roses
10 Ranunculus stems in eggplant
2 bunches of buttercup greens
2 bunches of vinca vine
2 stems of green hellebores
clippers or scissors
ribbon (1.5 yards)
Step # 1: Remove all most of the leaves from the stems.
Step # 2: Start with a selection of flowers in your hand. Add roses at the bottom and let the ranunculus buds peek out at the top. Turn the bouquet each time you add a new grouping of flowers. Keep turning and adding until you are happy with it. Add greens around the bottom.
Step # 3: Secure with twine.
Step #4: Clip the stems so they are all the same length.
Step #5: Wrap ribbon around stem and secure with two pins.
Chelsea, thank you again! So excited to have you on board!!
