The Step by Step

Step 1: gather the number of stems required to create your desired bouquet size, bend the stems to desired bouquet length and bind together with floral wire. We used 10 stems and bent to shorten them by approximately a quarter.

Step 2: wrap your stems together with the ruffled fabric ribbon. Start at the point at which you wired, secure with a bridal pin, and continue wrapping downward.

Step 3: secure your end point with a couple bridal pins. Make sure to point them upward and through the stems to secure the ribbon and to keep them away from your hands.

All it takes is one simple step! Fill up your chosen centerpiece vessel with enough stems to create a bountiful arrangement, bending your outer stems slightly to flow over the rim of your vessel. We used the French Provencal Enamel Pitcher which took 15 Stems.

Another one step wonder! Simply tie on several strands of satin ribbon to the base of the flower head. Tie the ribbons in double knots to secure them and keep ribbons just slightly longer than the stem itself.
