DIY Bouquet: Wispy Pastel Bouquet

written by Thalia Basulto August 30, 2018

Who’s ready for a super simple DIY wedding bouquet? We created this bridal bouquet using our Farm Mix Limonium pack and we’re in love with the result! This pack comes with an assortment of farm selected colors (something to keep in mind if you have a particular color palette you’re working with).

With over 21 colors to pick from, a farm mix pack and an airbrushed mix pack, you’re bound to find the color you need to fit within your color palette.

Limonium is a filler flower with a “spray” of several small papery blooms. This filler flower is typically used to add shape and fullness to an arrangement. It’s actually a great alternative for baby’s breath if you’re looking for a substitution. When used on its own, it makes a beautiful and voluminous arrangement.

Limonium may appear delicate, but it’s actually quite hearty and is easy to care for. (Not sure how to care for them? Check out our Flower Care and Preparation page here!)

Note: Limonium has a natural unpleasant scent. (This distinct scent is not a sign that limonium is old.) But don’t worry, you have the option of adding a scent to flowers such as lemon, passion fruit, cinnamon or vanilla!

Whether you’re a minimalistic bride who wants her arrangments simple or you’re a fan of having fresh flowers in your home, this bouquet is perfect for you!

Supplies:

  • 8 stems green limonium
  • 8 stems pink limonium
  • 8 stems lavender limonium
  • 8 stems white limonium
  • Floral tape
  • Floral shears
  • Ribbon

How-To Steps:

Step 1: Prepare

Prepare your blooms by trimming the ends of the stems and hydrating for at least 12 hours. Limonium can sometimes have an unpleasant scent. In order to prevent that, add a cap full of bleach in the water you prepare for the flowers.

Step 2: Making the Bouquet

This bouquet is super easy to make! Simply bunch together stems until you have a size you are comfortable with. We created a color-block look by bunching a few stems of the same color, then mixing the colors as we built the bouquet. Secure with floral tape.

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! Tie ribbon in a bow or knot to secure, then cut the ribbon to your desired length. Use floral shears to cut stems to an even length.
