Always process your bulk wedding flowers the way a professional florist would. This processing and other flower treatments is what sets professionals apart from amateurs.
Float soak your netted sphere in water that has been treated with cut flower food. This flower food is the key to nourishing each flower and has been proven that flowers last longer because of it.
Cutting them short, insert your roses first, spacing them out across the flower ball. The longer the length of your stems, the bigger the bouquet will be. If the bouquet owner is a small child, keep the flowers tight against the ball to minimize the size.
Try to insert only once, as pulling the flower stems in and out will degrade the foam. Cut longer staggered stems for the bottom, creating your cascade effect.
Next, add the miniature white carnations in a similar manner - again spacing out.
Cut the white stock into pieces and tuck in between roses and carnations. Add a long piece in the bottom of the foam ball for the cascadee effect. Work to keep a smooth, teardrop shape.
After design is complete, carefully spray the base of the stems with Floralock. Be careful not to overdo or the glue will drip down on onto the flower heads. Pay special attention to the longer cascade section. This part must be secure so the stems don't slide out of the bottom of the foam sphere.
When finished, spray the flowers with Finishing Touch to seal the bouquet. Store by hanging finished bouquets in cool area away from light. Refrigerate if possible.
