Bouquets

Hand-tied Bouquets
Assembling the hand-tied bouquet requires the florist to hold the stems in hand while creating the piece. The typical method is to lay each new stem at a 45-degree angle to the previous on and slowly curl the stems around until the flowers form a dome. This method was used in the construction of the bridal bouquet, also featured on the “Wedding” page. The arrangement of roses pictured below was created in a similar fashion but the method of assembly was less rigid.

 

Cascade Bouquets
Cascade bouquets are built on a special base composed of a plastic handle and floral foam enclosed in a plastic grid. Large flowers (roses, in the pieces pictured) forming the “skeleton” are placed first and anchored with tape or a similar medium. Secondary flowers and greenery are then added, filling out the cascade shape. Proportion is vital in creating this kind of bouquet.
