botanical garden bouquet

Nature’s textural handiwork is showcased in this contemporary nosegay.

     At first glance, the two types of Echeverias featured in this intriguing bouquet resemble unusual roses, but upon closer inspection, it’s clear that they’re the popular succulents often called “hen and chicks.” They’re amassed with several other intriguing botanicals into a verdant bouquet with a distinctive naturecentric appeal.


MATERIALS: Echeverias, carnations, ‘Green Trick’ Dianthuses, Hydrangeas, Galax leaves and florist wire from favorite suppliers; Oasis® Wedding Belle® Straight Handle Bouquet Holder from Oasis® Floral Products; Floratape® Stem Wrap from Bemis Company; Wood Picks from W.J. Cowee.
 
  This design was excerpted from Wedding Bouquets, a newly released book from Florists’ Review packed with more than 90 bouquets—45 of which have how-to instructions. To order this book, visit the “Bookstore” or call Florists’ Review at (800) 367-4708. Hardcover. 112 pages. WB610. $24.95.
 
HOW TO 1:
Using two pieces of medium-gauge enameled wire, perpendicularly pierce the stem of a cut Echeveria, bend the wires down, place a wood pick alongside the stem, and tape with stem wrap.
