Hi I am Sandy with A floral and today we will working with fresh flower foam products. And I have a bouquet holder here it got a plastic candle on it. It has got the fresh flower foam in the center of it and I am putting some leather leaf or bakers fern into it. I am going to stick it into this vase as my holder I got a little piece of foam in their and we have started covering the foam with some fern and I like greenery so we are going to also mix some other kinds in their. I have some lemon leaves or Sol ale. This is Call and we will put a few pieces of this in there. Remember if you use more green, which are less expensive, you will need, less flowers when you are designing something. So try uncover your piece of foam with greenery instead of using flowers you will save you a little money and sometime.
Now, we have lemon leaves or Sol ale, we have fern and the last one I am going to put in is seeded eucalyptus and this is one of my favorite greens because it comes with this seeds on here are like little berries and I just like the texture and color variation. So we will put a little seeded eucalyptus in here as well and all of these stems are sticking into the fresh flower foam so they will have a long life.
Now, those are already looking quite beautiful but let us add some roses to it. I have some white roses, these are fresh roses. Again I cut the stems short and we will arrange them around the first flower that I am putting in here. So, when we do a round bouquet you usually work in three’s because that gives us odd number and something round, four gives you something square. And you could see how quick and easy this bouquet goes together. Just cut the stems short for the flowers and when I say short you want it to stick all the way to the bottom of the oasis or fresh flower foam that you are using. In that way will get a drink a single flower will have a drink and it would not fall out and we just to put those roses in. All the way around we start with one in the center I put three around that and then three more and then I am going to put six of then towards the bottom. Then you can add a little filler if you want it to or a few more greens, some ribbon and this will make a beautiful bride’s bouquet or bride’s maids bouquet, or even a centerpiece that you can see what I am arranging in the base for a dinner party.
In my box, I have baby’s breath and I have heather and heather is one of my favorite flowers. So we are just going to add a little heather in here because we are going to add a little color. Again, using small stems and little bits all the way around and each of these pieces of heather will fit right in between the roses that have already put in there. So really if you can count to three you can make this bouquet. Let us pull it out of our vase take a quick look and is it that beautiful and if you would like to add a ribbon to it you can do that underneath and you have in a just few minutes a beautiful fresh flower bouquet.
