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:
You need:
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!!

Lovely. Anenomes are my favorite. This could be used for a centerpiece too.

The brown velvet ribbon with the red/pink tones is such a nice touch. Frolic is one of my favorites too, so I’m happy to see her here too.

It almost doesn’t seem possible that flowers can be so vibrant and downright interesting looking…, not your typical bouquet.
Love it.

What a sweet bouquet? Love the velvet ribbon. Reminds me of a Jane Austen book.

It is amazing how much florist charge for putting together a brides floral bouquet. Your example is so lovely and has inspired me to make my own! Thank you.
