Here is the second installment of our new column – bouquet blueprint… love that wool!
This winter inspired bouquet is created from a mix of Amaryllis and light textured elements for a spin on the traditional Christmas arrangement. Amaryllis is a very popular flower for the Christmas season; using them in the peach tone creates a light and unique feel. The wool wrapped stems create a soft texture to finish off the overall winter theme of the bouquet. Amaryllis is in available winter and spring while dahlia’s peak season is summer through early winter.
- 6 blooms of white dahlias
- 6 stems peach hypericum berries
- 3 stems “million star” gypsophila
- 5 stems Amaryllis “Rilona” (peach tone)
- 1 Oasis brand bouquet holder
- 36 clear irradiant glass ornaments
- 2 feet gray wool
- 36 pearl headed round pins
This bouquet is created from show stopping amaryllis stems surrounding a bouquet holder. The floral foam allows the dahlias, hypericum berries and gypsophila to have a water source and stay fresh all day long. Dahlias are very sensitive to lack of water and are best kept in a bouquet holder or directly placed in a small amount of water. Amaryllis is very delicate and it is best to touch them as little as possible.
A light and airy boutonniere is a perfect match for this bouquet. The boutonnieres below are perfect! Peach hypericum berries accented with twine on the stem; Berries, Million Star and ornaments; Million Star accented with soft gray wool.
