Planning a colorful boho celebration? Our Bright Bohemian Mix Pack offers a combination of festive colors like orange, hot pink, yellow and purple, offering just the right amount of color. This pack includes everything you need to create personalized arrangements. For this bridal bouquet, we used a little bit of everything in this pack, which includes Orange Spray Roses, Lavender Spray Stock, Thistle, Yellow Micro Poms and Green Ball Dianthus. If you’re looking into pre-arranged options don’t worry, these are offered in centerpieces too! You can find out Bright Bohemian Centerpieces here! Now, let’s jump into the steps on how to create your own.
- 5 stems Orange Spray Roses
- 5 stems Lavender Spray Stock
- 8 stems Thistle
- 4 stems Yellow Micro Poms
- 5 stems Green Ball Dianthus
- Floral Tape
- Floral Shears
Step 1: Prepare
Prepare your blooms by trimming the ends of the stems and hydrating for at least 12 hours. Spray Roses may need additional prep of removing thorns and any guard petals (the outer 3-5 petals of the rose), and you’ll want to remove some excess leaves from the Spray Stock and the Micro Poms.
Step 2: Making the Bouquet
Begin your bouquet with 3 stems of your central flowers. In this case, we used one each of the Spray Rose, Spray Stock and Green Ball Dianthus. Then begin adding additional stems of flowers, working around in a circle until you have a size you are comfortable with. Because the Spray Roses, Spray Stock and Micro Poms feature “sprays” of flowers, you can nestle other flowers between them to help break up the blooms. Secure with floral tape when finished.
Step 3: Finishing Touches
Finish the bouquet by wrapping with ribbon, making sure to cover the floral tape but leaving the ends of the bouquet exposed so you can continue to hydrate the flowers before you walk down the aisle! Secure ribbon with floral pins, then use floral shears to cut stems to an even length.
