wedding bouquet

all in the details

A tailored bay-leaf collar and a fashionable fabric treatment enhance this monochromatic bouquet.

Ideal for bringing a vibrant burst of color to any bride or bridesmaid, this monochromatic bouquet features flowers from delicate pink Bouvardias and French tulips to fragrant roses and stocks. But it’s the details that give this hand-tied bouquet its spunky personality.

The flowers’ stems, which also include those of sweet Williams (Dianthus), are wrapped with flirty fuchsia-colored wired ribbon. Another length of ribbon is scrunched to create a fashionable ruche treatment, which is secured with matching pearl-headed corsage pins.

A collar fashioned from bay leaves complements the pink flowers and ribbon treatment and adds further detail and dimension. To create the collar, a garland is constructed by winding wire around each leaf’s stem. The garland enwraps the bouquet several times.

MATERIALS: ‘Beauty by Oger’ roses, ‘Grand Style’ French tulips, sweet Williams (Dianthus), Bouvardias, stocks (Matthiolas) and bay leaves from California cut flower growers; Atlantic Brand Pins from Milton Adler Co.; ribbon from favorite supplier.
