Create A Bouquet in Blue

Learn to create a bouquet in a few easy steps using wonderful design products by Smithers-Oasis. These products and other supplies used by professional florists are available in my Wedding store.

This gorgeous bouquet can be used first a bridal design to carry down the aisle and then grace your wedding table as a beautiful centerpiece.

Begin by shaping the outer lines of your bouquet with greenry. This will define your overall shape and length of the finished bouquet. The greens in this bouquet are blue eucalyptus, green seeded eucalyptus and green ivy trailers. Place your largest flowers in the center to create a focal point. Here we are using a blue hydrangea and two phalaenopsis orchids.

Fill in the center with more flowers. Grouping similar flowers together creates an English garden style bouquet. This design incorporates blue hydranges, phalaneopsis orchids, and white roses.

Long stems of bright blue delphinium and wired phalaenopsis has been added to create a length for a cascade effect.

Flower adhesive should be used to secure all flowers after the design is finished. I like to use either Floralock or tube adhesive by Lomey.

Thread bullion wire through dendrobium blossoms or stephanotis blossoms for a glittery "hanging" look.

Spray a Lomey bouquet stand silver to coordinate with wedding scheme.

After the ceremony is finished, place your finished bouquet in the Lomey Vase and put on an upended vase to create a lovey display for your table.
