CRAFT: DIY Wedding
harpersweddingbouquet My First Wedding Bouquet
No silly, this isn’t a post about the bouquet from my first of many weddings! (So far I’ve only been married once, fingers crossed!) It’s actually the first wedding bouquet I ever made. I created it for my friend Harper, and I kinda went over the top with the flowers I chose. It has 5 types of orchids, including Cymbidium, Dendrobium, Phalaenopsis, Encyclia, and Odontoglossum. The other flowers include burgandy cala lillies, icelandic poppies, roses, orange asiatic lillies, and tuber rose to give it a luxurious scent. Each blossom is set into a bouquet holder that the bride wanted wrapped in red satin. Fun fact: the pretty red satins I liked were upwards of $60 per yard, so I went to the thrift store and picked up a red prom dress to chop into ribbon. Why is it sitting in a milk crate you ask? Milk crates are the perfect sturdy work surface for building bouquets in holders.
