With the same flowers I used in the large centerpiece the other day I also created the following two hand-tied bouquets.
Both bouquets can be bridal bouquets or they can also be placed in a vase or any type of appropriate waterproof vessel; suddenly, a bride’s bouquet is a centerpiece for any occasion.
This is why hand-tied bouquets are an absolute favorite of mine. They’re versatile and can be easily transported. In Europe, they’re extremely popular and sold everywhere.
They’re easy to plunk in a vase and easy to change the water without spoiling the design because all the stems are bound together with waterproof tape. Simply lift out, change the water, re-cut the stems and plunk back in the vessel. Changing the water everyday along with spraying the bouquet with Crowning Glory will result in long-lasting flowers–easily 7 days. My roses have lasted 9 days.
Hand-tied bouquets are not difficult to create. Like anything, it just takes a little practice, patience and time. I’ve shown people how to create similar bouquets in 30 minutes, then they practice and walk with a bouquet in under 2 hours.
And for someone who wishes to have an-all white bouquet, hydrangea, rununculus and lisiathus were used to create this bouquet. The lisianthus buds added a touch of green.
