wedding bouquet

composite collar

Decorative mesh provides a full and affordable bouquet accent.

A bouquet collar can give a standard bouquet the personal flair that today’s brides crave. Here, decorative mesh creates a geometric, value-added presentation that adds volume and texture and helps draw attention to the bouquet of crimson flowers. The mesh is cut into leaf-shaped pieces, each of which is curled into a conical, calla-shaped form and secured into the bouquet holder with a wood pick, with the peaked sides facing forward.

Although this particular bouquet is arranged into a bouquet holder, the collar treatment would work equally well as an adornment to a hand-tied bouquet, with the mesh pieces wired together. Decorative mesh is available in an array of colors and patterns to suit most any bouquet. A dusting of paint can be used to duplicate the exact tone of the flowers.

MATERIALS: tulips from The Sun Valley Group; ‘Cherry Folies’ spray roses, sweetheart roses and waxflowers from favorite suppliers; Plaid Sinamay Mesh from Artbloom Imports; Terra Rosa Colortool Spray from Design Master Color Tool; wood picks from W.J. Cowee. To contact these companies, see “Product Source Guide” on Page 161.



Cut simple leaf shapes from a roll of decorative mesh.

Curve one end of each “leaf” to form a cone, and attach

a wired wood pick to it.
