Planning a winter/spring wedding? We created this bright and cheerful bridal bouquet using our Sunshine Textured Filler Pack! This pack contains yellow billy balls, white stock, yellow solidago, yellow freesia, white spray roses and dusty miller, which we chose to leave out of this bouquet. Each flower is available year-round and they are easy to care for. Keep in mind, spray roses can come with thorns on the stems, and you may want to gently pluck off some tiny outer guard petals. This DIY combo pack comes with everything you need to create beautiful floral arrangements. Here’s an example of how this DIY pack could be arranged. Be sure to check out the supplies list and how-to steps below to recreate this bouquet!
- 12 Craspedia Billy Balls
- 8 stems White Stock
- 6 stems Solidago
- 5 stems Freesia
- 3 stems Spray Roses
- Floral Tape
- Floral Shears
- Floral Pins
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 Stock.
Step 2: Making the Bouquet
Begin your bouquet with 3 stems of your central flowers. In this case, we used one each of the Craspedia, Spray Rose, and Solidago. Then begin adding additional stems of these flowers, working around in a circle until you have a size you are comfortable with, then secure with floral tape. Work in the Freesia and Stock around this “core” you’ve created.
Step 3: Finishing Touches
Finish the bouquet by wrapping with ribbon, making sure to cover your floral tape but leaving the ends of the bouquet exposed so you can continue to hydrate your arrangement up until the main event! Cut your coordinating ribbon (we chose a silvery-gray silk ribbon) to your desired length and secure with floral pins. Use floral shears to cut stems to a uniform length.
