clearly chic

The bouquet becomes the centerpiece when its clear plastic holder tucks invisibly into a glass-filled vase.

     Whether beloved for their own endearing qualities or because they’re exquisite substitutes for bridal favorites such as roses and Gardenias, this elegant cluster of pearly Ranunculi is a sublime choice for a summer ceremony. Softly textured lamb’s-ears foliage enhances the luxury factor with its velvety finish.

     Increase the value quotient by enabling this bouquet, and those of the rest of the bridal party, to serve as centerpieces at the reception. Fill clear vessels with crystalline sea glass, so bouquets, created in clear plastic bouquet holders, can be tucked among the lustrous pebbles.

MATERIALS: Ranunculi, Hydrangeas, lamb’s-ears foliage and sea glass from favorite suppliers; Gala Bouquet Holder™ from FloraCraft; Fat Conical Vase from Accent Décor; chenille stems from Milton Adler Company; Oasis® Floral Adhesive from Oasis® Floral Products; Tack 2000 spray adhesive from Design Master Cool Tool.

Clip off the stem ends of the lamb’s-ears foliage to create a blunt horizontal base on each leaf. Affix the leaves to the underside of the bouquet holder with spray adhesive.
  HOW TO 2:
Insert a chenille stem into each of the Ranunculi’s hollow stems. Arrange the flowers into the bouquet holder’s saturated foam.
  HOW TO 3:
Adhere a chenille stem to the back of each leaf with floral adhesive. Cut the chenille stems to the desired length, and insert them into the bouquet.
