wedding bouquet

wired wheat

AFresh bearded wheat accents a pretty-in-pink design.

Wrapped with beading wire from top to bottom, fresh bearded wheat provides the support structure for this striking calla and yarrow scepter bouquet. The wheat, the lengthy stems of which serve as the bouquet’s handle, is gathered into a haphazard bundle and conceals a straight-handled bouquet holder. A wide banding of beading wire, just beneath the heads, accents the stems and secures the bouquet holder in place.
Geranium foliage and bunches of pink cottage yarrow are arranged into the center of the bouquet holder while the trumpetlike calla blossoms are placed around the perimeter with the help of floral adhesive.

MATERIALS: miniature callas, cottage yarrow, bearded wheat and geranium foliage from California cut flower growers; Wedding Belle Bouquet Holder and Floral Adhesive from Smithers-Oasis; beading wire from favorite supplier.
