wedding bouquet

sentimental value

A rhinestone heirloom brings sparkle and significance to this simple bouquet.

The elaborate rhinestone pin centered in this rosette of ‘Toscana’ Alstroemeria petals illustrates how a family heirloom can be incorporated beautifully and creatively into a bridal bouquet. The piece of jewelry, in addition to being sentimentally significant, adds dramatic flair to the otherwise simple arrangement. A collar of rose leaves positioned beneath the petals adds texture and dimension to the bouquet, and the bouquet holder creates unity within the arrangement by emphasizing the dark pink accents on the Alstroemerias.
Despite its impressive appearance, this bouquet is simple and inexpensive to create. In addition to being a great value, the arrangement is sure to increase the emotional value of the bride’s special day.

MATERIALS: Posy Pocket® bouquet holder from Cameo MacGuffin; FloraGlu Liquid Adhesive from Floralife; Alstroemerias from Flores Silvestres S.A.; pin from private collection.
