wedding bouquet

ringed posy

An all-white, Biedermeier-style nosegay is just right for the bride.

A vision in white, this structured Biedermeier-style nosegay, featuring roses, tulips, Freesias and yarrow, is an elegant bridal selection. Arranged in a straight-handled bouquet holder, the concentric rings are formed from the center out, starting at the crown of the holder’s foam cage.
Cascading ribbon streamers, tied at the top with bows and wired onto wood picks, adorn the bouquet’s edge and disguise the holder’s handle. While the streamers add a casual, carefree touch, the ringed Biedermeier nosegay has a stylized, formal feel.


MATERIALS: ‘Eskimo’ roses, tulips, Freesias, cottage yarrow and ivy from California cut flower growers; Wedding Belle Bouquet Holder and Waterproof Tape from Smithers-Oasis; wired wood
picks from W.J. Cowee; picot ribbon and chenille
stems from favorite suppliers.

with long streamers. Fasten
the bows to wired wood picks,
