exotic head gear

Captivating fall florals are tucked into a botanical base of baby’s breath for bridesmaids and flower girls.

   Head pieces are fashionable fare for flower girls, but this autumnal selection, with its collection of premium orchids and other exotics, offers style befitting bridesmaids as well. The materials are glued into a garland fashioned from baby’s breath, so it’s comfortable to wear down the aisle and throughout the nuptial celebration.

MATERIALS: orchids and Hypericum from Transflora; pineapple buttons from Schusters of Texas; baby’s breath (Gypsophila), yarrow, globe amaranths (Gomphrena) and wooden beads from favorite suppliers; ribbon from Berwick Offray; Oasis™ Metallic Wire, Oasis™ Bind Wire and Oasis® Floral Adhesive from Oasis® Floral Products.

Gather several stems of baby’s breath into a small bunch, and bind the stems with wire. Gather additional baby’s breath into another bunch, and lay it atop the wired stems. Bind this bunch of baby’s breath to the first bunch, and continue this procedure until a garland is formed.
  HOW TO 2:
Glue orchids, globe amaranths and other materials into the baby’s breath garland with liquid floral adhesive. Clip Hypericum branchlets into small clusters, and glue each group into the garland.
  HOW TO 3:
Clip bits of paper-covered wire, and thread wooden beads onto the wires. Twist the paper-covered wires to secure. Glue the beads’ wire “stems” into the wreath.
