Garden Bridal Bouquet Challenge

My Garden Bridal Bouquet Challenge

A couple of weeks ago I thought I’d challenge myself to creating a Garden Bridal Bouquet using only the flowers I had available in my garden.

First I collected all the flowers I wanted to use and hydrated them.

Testing them to make sure they would hold up.

Some flowers do not hold up as a cut flower.

By testing them first I was able see what would be the best flowers to work with and if this were a real bridal bouquet.

Some of the flower and foliage I wanted to use do not have stems long enough to be incorporated into the bouquet so I have to wire and tape them so they can be added to the bouquet.

Once this was all complete I could begin to create the bouquet.

Creating this bouquet was so much fun.

It tested my creativity with only the flowers I had at hand.

Below is the final product.

The flowers and foliage I selected were Succulents, Magnolia foliage, Pentas, Buddha Belly flower, Stephanotis, Knock Out Roses, Begonia foliage, Dusty Miller, Phalaenopsis  Orchids, Bamboo, Foxtail Fern, Marigold, Dahlia, Rosemary, Anthurium, and Gomphrena

In the coming weeks and months I plan on continuing my Bouquet Challenge.

I’m planning on creating Bridal Bouquets with different looks and from places you might not think you will find things to create a Bridal Bouquet.
