wedding bouquet

verdant posy

This monochromatic bouquet is perfect for modern brides and bridesmaids alike.

Green has emerged as one of the most popular colors for contemporary weddings, giving a natural, botanical feeling to settings from gardeny to glamorous. This bouquet, at a glance, makes it difficult to distinguish the flowers from the foliages. All are arranged among one another, with a “rose” created from Algerian ivy (Hedera canariensis) as the focal point. Variegated Aspidistra leaves and oregonia add creamy highlights to the bouquet, and young Queen Anne’s lace (Ammi) adds texture with its fluffy white tips. Swirls of lily grass (Liriope) lend motion to the design.

The materials are arranged into a straight-handle bouquet holder, which is dropped into a decorative holder. The patterned fabric that covers the decorative holder brings the shades of green right down to the tip of the composition, giving it a tailored look.

MATERIALS: FloraShapes® Bridal Bouquet Holder from Floralife; Posy Pocket® from Cameo MacGuffin; Square Vase from Syndicate Sales; Floratape® from Alcan Packaging; Algerian ivy, ‘Kermit’ spray chrysanthemums, Queen Anne’s lace, lily grass, oregonia, Aspidistra leaves and Pittosporum from favorite suppliers.
