1. Prepare Your Ingredients

After your flowers are hydrated, organise and lay out the stems you will need in front of you. Be sure to wire your succulent prior to assembling your bouquet.

2. Build The Foundation

Create the base of your bouquet by combining the assorted greens with the limonium. For a more wild effect, keep some of the greenery longer than others.

3. Tuck in the Focal Flowers

Focal flowers are protea, rose, succulent and safari sunset. Tuck them in evenly inside the foundation you have built.

4. Add in Accent Flowers

Accent pieces are the liatris and scabiosa pods. Keep the two stems of liatris at two different heights to avoid making it look like an antennae.

5. Bind and Cut to Length

Bind your bouquet with a rubber band. Tip: use floral tape first to make it easier. Trim the stems according to your personal preference. We usually recommend 6”.

6. Tie Your Bouquet

Wrap the bouquet with ribbon, covering the rubber band. Secure the ribbon with pins pointing upwards at a 45 degrees angle. Tie a bow with black and white ribbon and pin it into the bouquet.
