You're new to the skills necessary to complete this project, or maybe you've tried them just once or twice before.
Step 1
Project Note: To begin to create this bouquet, you will need to establish which hand you will use for holding the arrangement as you work. The other hand will be for building the bouquet.
 
Start with a stem of the eucalyptus and begin to add the peonies. Position them at different heights. 
Step 2
Add the roses to the bouquet and place them between the peonies. 
Step 3
Place some Queen Anne's Lace to the back of the bouquet. 
Step 4
In the front of the bouquet place the weeping fern. 
Step 5
Once all the flowers are in one hand, adjust the arrangement as desired. 
Step 6
At the base of the flowers wrap floral wire around the stems to hold the shape. Twist it to keep it tight and tuck the sharp cut wires into the stems. 
Step 7
To cover the wire, wrap the top of the stems with floral tape about 2" long.
 
TIP: Floral tape works best by wrapping and pulling the tape. The pulling of the tape releases the adhesive to keep it sticking to itself. 
Step 8
Set the arrangement down and begin to work on the ribbons. 
Step 9
Cut three ribbons about 4' long. Layer them on top of each other, keeping the outside of the layer with the decorative side of the ribbon and the pop of color in the middle. 
Step 10
Keeping the ribbons together, tie a knot around the top of the bouquet and let the ribbons drape. Since this ribbon has wire, use your fingers to give it a soft bend. Trim the ends to give it a professional look. 
Step 11
Trim the floral stems to the length of your liking with wire cutters.
