A pearl-encrusted stem treatment elevates the value of a simple hand-tied bouquet.

     Hand-tied bouquets often are created with much attention to the flowers and little to the stems. But accents such as ribbon treatments, pearl or jeweled bands, decorative wire and gems in a host of styles can take bouquets from pretty to pristine, and such accents can be profit-boosting enhancements for your wedding sales.

     The simplicity of this monobotanical bouquet—featuring two varieties of yellow sweetheart roses—is balanced by an elegant stem treatment. Wrapped with waterproof tape concealed with white ribbon, the stems feature what looks to be a pearl-studded wrap but actually is four flexible Bouquet Bracelets™ stacked atop one another. A simple shoestring ribbon bow is accented with a flower-shaped gem.

     Providing such details will set your wedding creations apart. Create a photo book to show brides your bouquet enhancement options. Include photos of basic hand-tied bouquets next to the same bouquets that are “dressed up,” and include prices so that brides can see the value of taking their bouquets to the next level.

‘Beach’ and ‘Frisco’ sweetheart roses from Rosa Flora Limited; “Sugar” Bouquet Bracelets™ and “Delightful” Kara’s Kisses pin from Fitz Design; ribbon from Berwick Offray; Oasis® Waterproof Tape from Oasis® Floral Products.
