Whimsical Bouquets

Several years ago I bought a wonderful and very inspiring book: “Straight from the Heart – Bridal Floristry for the 21st Century” by Liz & Claire Cowling. Claire teaches workshops and owns a flower shop Thrive Floristry in Bury St Edmonds in England. I am beyond thrilled that I will have the opportunity to teach a workshop at her school next year in May!

I was  very curious by the bridal bouquet designs that included a wire frame.  Unable to find frames that I liked, I commissioned a welder to make some and figured out the mechanics. Here are some examples of these whimsical bouquets; they are fun alternatives to the traditional hand-tieds. There are many options to decorate the handle and to hide the mechanics at the base. You’ll learn how to make these in the wedding workshops.The next one is scheduled on November 10-12 in the studio.
