The Bride, Megan Brown Campbell, chose a nosegay for her Bridesmaids. This nosegay contained white hydrangeas, pink garden roses, spray roses, lisianthus, and blue limonium. Springeri was the greenery used to complete the bouquet.
I used extra-large bouquet holders to create these bouquets. These holders are filled with floral foam. This allows added moisture to the blooms. This also allows the blooms to be front facing. Soak the holders for at least 24 hours in water prepared with floral preservative.
I place the handle of the bouquet form in a piece of styrofoam. Place a heavy object on the back of the styrofoam to prevent the bouquet from falling while you are working on the bouquet. I began the bouquet by placing 2 hydrangea blooms in the center, close to the form. I covered the edges of the form with springeri. I then began building the bouquet by adding three garden roses to the hydrangea blooms. I then added spray roses and lisianthus to the sides of the garden roses. I added the blue limonium throughout the edges and center of the bouquets.
We chose to use the Bouquets as centerpieces for a few guest’s tables. We place the bouquet on the table in a bed of springeri greenery to cushion the blooms and cover the base of the bouquet holder. Other tables held bowls of hydrangeas, roses, and blue limonium with leatherleaf greenery to complete the decorations of guest’s tables.
