Lately my favorite kinds of bouquets to make are ones like Janice’s, with an eclectic mix of colors and types of flowers. Janice is a great example of that style that I love so much right now. She sent me a color palette, assured me that she would love whatever I made, and told me one word: “eclectic.” I went with it and I’m glad that she was happy with the results!
As I arrange each bouquet after I finish the flowers, I tend to arrange them very tightly, kinda crammed in together. Once the bride receives the flowers, she can “fluff” it out as much as she wants and add some more volume to the bouquet, or leave it more densely packed as I arranged it.
Right now I’m working on a bouquet more like the ones I’ve done in the past–all one type of flower, all the same length, uniform stitching on the leaves–and one more like Janice’s except even a little bit more wild in the heights and fullness of the whole bouquet. Going back and forth between each style is fun and I love the creative challenge.
