colorful floral bridal bouquet

Make a fun, colorful bridal bouquet that shows off your playful style! We’ll show you how to build this gorgeous arrangement out of roses, daisies, ranunculus and even palm leaves! It’s the perfect complement to a beautiful bride (like you!) on your special wedding day!
Step 1
Project Note: As you build this bouquet, you’ll hold it in one hand and add flowers with the other. Make sure you have all your floral elements within reach as you begin!
 
To make your arrangement, begin with your focal flowers (especially the larger blooms, such as roses) and use them to establish the shape of your bouquet. Remember that you don’t want it to be completely balanced. Adding a little asymmetry will give it a natural feeling.
 
TIPS: Here are a few tips to keep in mind as you create your bouquet:
   -  Start with our Real Touch™ roses. They work well to create a natural, asymmetrical shape that will serve as the base for your bouquet.
   -  Make sure to cluster some of the roses close to your hand, and arrange others so that they’re arcing away from the bouquet’s center.
   -  Keep in mind that all of these floral elements have bendable stems. As you work, curve and angle the stems to give them the kind of bend or droop that you’d see in nature. 
Step 2
Next, add your filler flowers and sections of bushes. 
Step 3
Vary the flowers’ colors as you add them, and make sure to include special, delicate flowers such as ranunculus. 
Step 4
Finally, create a base for your bouquet by adding greenery.

TIP: Palm branches are a great choice for creating the base. Their delicate leaves and summery, tropical feel will provide a nice contrast in texture and color.
Step 5
Once you’re happy with your arrangement, wrap floral wire tightly around the stems, close to the flowers, to hold your bouquet’s shape. 
Step 6
Now, use your floral cutters to trim the stems evenly, so that all of them are about 8" long (or length you are comfortable holding in your hand). 
Step 7
Next, cover the wire with floral tape. Stretch the tape as you wrap it to release its wax adhesive coating, which allows it to stick to itself. 
Step 8
You’re almost done! Finish the bouquet by wrapping a brightly colored ribbon around the stems, making sure to cover the floral tape. Tuck the ribbon ends into the wrapped portion to make it look nice and neat. Finally, use a dab or two of hot glue to hold the ribbon in place. So colorful!
