wedding bouquet

rosemary bundle

Fragrant springtime blossoms abound in this floral cone.

Featuring fragrant rosemary and a mix of sweet-smelling blossoms, this pretty cone-shaped bouquet can beautifully grace any springtime wedding, from casual to formal.
To create this luscious selection, the rosemary is formed into a conical, flat-topped bunch and bound with beading wire. A straight-handled bouquet holder, into which the flowers are arranged, is nestled into the rosemary, and permanent wired vines are coiled around the bundle. A garland of hyacinth florets, strung on beading wire and wrapped around the cluster of florals, echoes the movement of the wired vines.

MATERIALS: roses, hyacinths and rosemary from California cut flower growers; Wedding Belle Bouquet Holder from Smithers-Oasis.
