This particular tutorial shows how to make a calla lily wedding bouquet. You will need the following supplies:
13 White Miniature Calla Lilies
20 Deep Plum Miniature Calla Lilies
Pearl Headed Pins
Finishing Touch Flower Spray
Bolt of Sheer Ribbon
Light Green Florist's Tape
I must caution the inexperienced designer that this bouquet is a little more challenging. Although it seems that you should be able to simply gather the flowers together and tie them with ribbon, calla lilies sometimes have a mind of their own. It's tricky to get them to get a hand tied bouquet to fit well together and keep it's rounded shape.
It is easier to create a
faux hand tied bouquet
, where you insert the flowers into a foam holder and then use the stems to simulate a hand tied look. You have a great deal more control and less frustration because every flower stays exactly where you put them.
