Today we are sharing a super fun, modern and metallic twist on a winter wedding bouquet! The bold handle (made of spray painted leaves) makes a huge statement while the touches of gold succulents are a whimsical feel that brings in glamour! Jacki from Floral Design by Jacqueline Ahne has done it again! We are in love, aren’t you!?!
AVAILABILITY // Guess what!!! This bouquet can be created year round ~ hooraay!!! A different feel can be achieved by switching the colors of the hydrangea and roses. Pink hydrangea and orange roses would be a fun spring look while blue and lavender would be a more jewel tone fall look. There are so many different options for this bouquet… don’t forget that metallic silver can be a replacement for the gold!
RECIPE // 4 stems ‘mini-green’ hydrangea + 1/4 bunch Queen Anne’s lace + 4 stems white hydrangea + 10 peach roses + handful of various sized succulents and Hala leaves painted metallic gold
CARE // Hydrangea is very water sensitive especially during hot summer months. It is definitely best kept in a small amount of water until ready to be used. Another option would be to create this bouquet in a bouquet holder and keep in a cooler.
BOUTONNIERES // From traditional to modern there are many options to coordinate with this bouquet. Shown on the left is a small modern boutonniere created from a painted succulent, berries and looped grass. For a more traditional boutonniere, a rose can be accented with wire on the stem to bring in the metallic feel without being overpowering.
