How to make a simple, but beautiful bouquet

We all love to receive flowers, but not all of us are lucky enough to recieve beautiful bouquets. If your  like me you will probably get supermarket bunches or even worse flowers from a petrol station (Tillys dad would buy me reduced flowers from a petrol station).

How wonderful would it be if you could put together your own bouquet at a fraction of the price? You could make them for yourself or give them as gifts to your friends and family. You can make your own bouquet with this step by step guide.

When making a bouquet, always work with odd numbers of flowers. Firstly you will need a good sturdy flower for the centre, a lily makes a good start. Hold it in your and, with your thumb keeping it firmly in place. then add some foliage. You add it to the bouquet by angling it slightly to the right.

Keep looking at the flowers as your making the bouquet, you need to check its somewhat symmetrical. Build your bouquet up by using the flowers and foliage you have chosen. Remembering to place them to the right as your going and twist the bouquet round to add fullness all the way.

Keep standing back and taking a look at your flowers, is it symmetrical, are there any gaps? do you need anymore colour? If you have gaps you can slot more flowers in them and if you feel you have too many flowers on one side, you can jiggle them about and remove some. 

Once your happy with the bouquet, lay it down on the table or work bench and tie some green garden string or twine around the stems, then wrap it in cellophane to offer the complete package. You can add water to the cellophane to keep you flowers healthy untill you give them to the person they are meant for. 

This demonstration was bought to us by and was offered to me in exchange for a blog post. Why not try for find your girlfriends #favouriteflower at and try and win a bouquet for your friend?
