I really enjoy trying my hand at making bouquets.
I have not taken any classes or had any official training--yet!
I just think it's fun to play around with flowers (surprise, surprise).
These 2 bouquets are from the past month or so.
This first one is a mix of flowers from our local u-pick flower farm and my own garden.
It's one of my better efforts, I think.
I really love those sprays of miniature daisies.
Not only are they cute, they smell like honey!
I need to get online and figure out what variety they are.
Here's another attempt:
This one was all flowers from my flowerbeds and garden.
I don't like it nearly as much.
I think I've got too many of the smaller types of flowers in there, to the point where it looks a bit weedy. The colors are fine, though.
Next time I would do 3 or 4 stems of the hydrangea, and maybe just pick 1 type of the smaller filler flowers. I am excited to try all the "recipes" in The Flower Recipe Book.
I expect to learn a lot from it.
Have you made any bouquets lately?
