first bouquet!


So I received a special request from a lovely bride in Australia a few months ago, asking if I could design her bridal bouquet and head wreath. I have made small nosegays in the past, but this is my first attempt at a full nosegay bouquet. I am really, really happy with it (and so is the bride, yayy!!!). What do you think? Should I offer bouquets in my shop now??

It is made of roses, lilies, babies breath, pink wild flowers, forget-me-nots, and the stem is wrapped in a piece of antique lace. I dotted the top and bottom with tiny pearls, and tucked lace pieces and pearls into the petals of the bigger flowers too. It took many hours to make, probably because I am WAY too much of a perfectionist, and every stem and flower had to be wired together just right!!
