DIY Bouquet: Sunny Country Chic Bouquet

written by Thalia April 24, 2018

If this is your first time DIYing your flowers for a special event then I highly recommend checking out our combo packs! Our combo packs are filled with a variety of flowers, giving you everything you need to create beautiful bouquets. What I love most about our packs is the conveniences and the peace of mind knowing the flowers will pair effortlessly together.

For this bridal bouquet, we decided to use our Monochromatic Yellow Combo Pack, containing a blend of limonium, daisies, snapdragons, alstroemeria and gerbera daisies. We also added Green Button Poms and Purple Asters for a pop of color and added texture. Although these combo packs come with everything you need to make your arrangements, you also have the ability to incorporate other flowers to really let your creativity bloom. 😉

Other than yellow, our monochromatic packs are offered in white, purple, pink, red, lavender, green and order. These mixed flower boxes are available year-round and include hardy flowers. Order this week to save 10% at FiftyFlowers.com!

Supplies

  • 3 stems Yellow Gerber Daisies
  • 3 stems Yellow Snapdragons
  • 5 stems Yellow Limonium
  • 3 stems Yellow Alstroemeria
  • 4 stems Yellow Spray Daisies
  • 4 stems Kermit Green Button Poms
  • 3 stems Purple Aster
  • Floral Tape
  • Floral Shears
  • Ribbon

How-To Steps:

Step 1: Prepare

Prepare your blooms by trimming all stems upon arrival, removing any foliage that will fall below the water level, and hydrating for at least 12 hours in cool, clean water.

Step 2: Making the Bouquet

Begin your bouquet with 3 stems of focal flowers. In this case, we used the 3 Gerber Daisies to begin with. Then begin adding additional stems working around in a circle until you have a size you are comfortable with. We made sure to evenly space the Purple Asters as well as the Snapdragons to provide some balance to the arrangement. Secure with floral tape.

Step 3: Finishing Touches

Finish the bouquet by wrapping your stems with ribbon and tie in a bow or decorative knot. Make sure to cover the floral tape but leave the ends of the bouquet exposed so you can continue to hydrate the flowers before you walk down the aisle! Cut ribbon to desired length (we left it long and flowing!), then use floral shears to cut stems to desired length.

This bouquet was created by me (a regular DIY-er and surely not a professional florist).
