design WEDDING

summertime spirals

Swirled wire accents are spellbinding contributions to this charming hand-tied bouquet.

    A lovely hand-gathered bouquet gains hypnotic appeal with multiple swirls of pink aluminum wire that appear to be arranged among the blooms. (Actually, the swirled wires are assembled first, as an armature, or supportive framework, and the blooms are arranged into them.) While the blushing nosegay is delightful on its own, the spiraled aluminum accents add playful shimmer to the monochromatic palette.

MATERIALS: miniature callas, sweet peas, Nerines and globe amaranths (Gomphrenas) from favorite suppliers; Oasis™ Aluminum Wire from Oasis® Floral Products.

 
HOW TO 1:
Roll long pieces of aluminum wire into spirals using a pair of needle-nose pliers
  HOW TO 2:
Bend the ends of the wires down, so the spirals are somewhat horizontal, and gather them all into a “posy.”
  HOW TO 3:
Arrange the fresh florals through and around the wiry accents. Take care to conceal the wire “stems.”
