How to Assemble

This gorgeous cream, yellow and green bouquet needs to be slightly more rounded and domed than a normal hand-tied bouquet.

Divide the different flowers into separate piles. Hold a flower stem in your hand and add another variety of flower to it. Twist the bunch around slightly in your hand as you do so.

Add more stems at the same angle to create a spiral stem effect. Keep turning the bunch in the same direction as you work. Add one of each of the different flowers until you have included all the blooms and have a balanced look. Recess the tulips slightly if you make the bouquet the day before it is needed; they will continue to open even after placed in the bouquet.

Arrange the last two layers of flowers slightly lower around the edges for a domed effect.

Tie the bunch with a length of raffia or string. Cover the raffia with a long length of thick cream ribbon, wrapped several times around the stems, and tied in a knot. Trim the stem ends straight across with garden shears.

For more details on making a hand-tied bouquet, see our step-by-step instructions.

Keep the bouquet misted or in water until the last minute. Be sure to dry the bouquet stems with a cloth so they don't drip on the bride's dress.
