Bouquet Blueprint | babies breath + pearls

Share this project

Babies breath bouquets have been quite the rage lately… so we figured we’d embrace this new trend! Aside from babies breath being incredibly inexpensive, it’s a flower that has a wide range of options. This bouquet pairs various small and delicate feeling blooms with that trending bud for a more elaborate looking bunch. We’ve wrapped the stem with soft burlap ribbon to add a rustic feel to this beautiful bouquet that is perfect for any season…


AVAILABILITY // All the flowers in this bouquet can easily be sourced year round! Meaning no matter winter or the middle of summer – you can have this look. Stock comes in a variety of pale colors which could bring a completely different feel to this bouquet; pale peach, pale yellow, pale pink, and lavender.


RECIPE // 6 stems of stock, 1/4 bunch of million star babies breath, 5 stems of button mums, and 18 blooms of stephanotis with pearl pins in the center


CARE // Overall this bouquet is water sensitive. Stock can be delicate so it’s best to keep this bouquet in a small amount of water until the wedding begins. It’s also best if it can be placed in a decorative jar of water at the reception. Stephanotis can be a difficult flower to use and is best used with a special water source called a stephanotis stem (can be purchased at a local flower shop). It’s actually best to leave the stephanotis in a cooler until the morning of the wedding and then place it in the bouquet. 


BOUTONNIERES // Each of these boutonnieres are simple and elegant for a no-fuss look that perfectly matches the bouquet. Notice that stock was not used in any of them because of it’s water sensitivity. Babies breath and button mums are perfect flowers for boutonnieres, wrap with a little burlap ribbon held in place with flower pins and they are ready to go!
