5 stems of the Juliet peach garden rose
6 stems of baby’s breath
7 stems of dusty miller
2 stems of seeded eucalyptus
2 feet of desired ribbon or burlap
How to make this bouquet:
- Start with 1 garden rose and build around it with 1 or 2 stems of baby’s breath.
- Add 1 or 2 stems of dusty miller and pieces of the seeded eucalyptus around the baby’s breath.
- Add extra baby’s breath if the center garden rose doesn’t have a good amount around it.
- When looking at the start of the bouquet from the top, picture a square forming around the center garden rose. The remaining 4 garden roses be placed in the corners of that square. To give the bouquet a round shape, have the surrounding garden roses lowers than the center bloom.
- Start by placing 2 garden roses on any side of the center blooms. Separate the large blooms with baby’s breath and the other greens.
- Repeat step 5 with the last two garden roses.
- Use the remaining filler and greenery for the edges of the bouquet.
- Hold all stems tightly together and use stem wrap to hold them together.
- Cover the stem wrap with ribbon or burlap of choice.
