something blue


Just two varieties of flowers make a dramatic statement in this monochromatic bouquet.


Ideal for a bride who loves a modern look but seeks the simplicity of a minimal selection of flowers, this sophisticated composition beckons wedding guests to admire it. Radial placements of grape hyacinths (Muscari) provide a shower of texture as they create a collar around pale blue Hydrangea florets.


To design this bouquet, first arrange the Hydrangea blossoms in a tufted manner close to the surface of the decorative bouquet holder’s floral-foam cage. Then arrange Muscaris around the perimeter of the nosegay in several levels to create a “fringy” collar. Finish by arranging discarded Muscari stems to create the illusion that they are intersecting the mound of Hydrangeas. 



MATERIALS: grape hyacinths (Muscari) and Hydrangeas from California cut flower growers; Elegant® Bouquet Holder from Smithers-Oasis. To contact Smithers-Oasis, see “Product Source Guide” on Page 105.
