I LOVE mixing various greens in wedding bouquets. This is especially true for the monochromatic bouquets (all one color). The glossy mix of greenery gives a wonderful contrast to the white daisies.
Israeli ruscus has a broader leaf that the Italian ruscus. The leaves cup in slightly and have a wonderful oval shape.
For cascade work, I generally strip off the bottom leaves to give me a stem to insert into the bouquet design. Set these leaves aside in a plastic baggie and store in the fridge until you are ready to do your corsage and boutonnieres.
I begin by tucking a stem under the bottom, filling out the cascade.
I insert another piece to the left side.
Then I began filling in around the outer rim of the bouquet.
Like with the leather fern, I made the top stem a little longer to keep the oval shape of the bouquet.
