DIY Wedding Wednesday: Winter Floral Arrangements

diy winter floral arrangements

What do dusty purples, frosted blues and silver tinted greens have in common? They all happen to make beautiful color options for a gorgeous winter wedding palette. Mix with classic snow white and you’ve got yourself a stunning color combo. Taking the in season stems we shared with you in this past Monday’s Winter Floral Guide, featured in these exact shades, today we’re creating a few warm hued arrangements to show you some of the pretty possibilities. From a simple and sophisticated boutonniere, to a loose and lovely bouquet, to an overflowing and abundant centerpiece, here’s what some of winter’s best come together to create. {note: for best results, we always recommend working with a professional florist whenever possible.}

Look #1: The Simple and Sophisticated Boutonniere – Supplies

  • flowers / foliage: dusty purple spray rose, dusty miller and seeded eucalyptus
  • floral wire, floral tape and bridal pin
  • craft paper twine
  • floral sheers

The Step by Step

diy winter boutonniere - step 1

Step 1: select your stems, you’ll need one of each, cut down to size to approximately 2 – 2.5 inches depending on the stem, and trim off excess leaves. For best textural results, make sure your seeded eucalyptus has both a leaf and seeds.

Step 2: layer your stems starting with the dusty miller, then the seeded eucalyptus and finally the rose. Trim ends to even out the stems. Wrap the bundle with floral wire, starting at the base of the dusty miller’s leaf and ending just above the end of your bundle. Once complete the stems should stay securely bundled.

Step 3: wrap the floral wire with floral tape for an even finish.

Step 4: finish off by covering the floral tape with craft paper twine and pin in the back to secure.

The End Result

Look #2: The Loose and Lovely Bouquet

  • flowers / foliage: dusty purple spray roses (approximately 5 stems), anemone (approximately 3-4 stems) and seeded eucalyptus (approximately 3-4 stems)
  • floral wire, floral tape and a couple bridal pins
  • craft paper twine
  • floral sheers

The Step by Step

diy winter bridal bouquet - step 1

Step 1: select your stems, trim off excess leaves and cut down to size. The length of your bouquet should be proportionate to your body, such that you can hold it comfortably, with just a bit of excess stems showing.

Step 2: begin bundling your bouquet by mixing your anemones and spray roses. Work to create a balanced mix of stems, breaking up your roses with the anemones.

Step 3: add in a scattering of the seeded eucalyptus stems to the outer perimeter of your bouquet. Use the eucalyptus to prop up any anemones not already held up by the roses as the anemones are the weakest stems of the bunch.

Step 4: wrap your bouquet with floral wire. Start at the top of bundle, such that the stems are secured in place and wrap about 3 inches down.

Step 5: wrap the floral wire with floral tape for an even finish.

Step 6: finish off the wrap by covering the floral tape with craft paper twine and secure at the back of the bouquet with a couple pins. Complete the bouquet by trimming and evening out your stem’s ends.

Look #3: The Overflowing and Abundant Centerpiece – Supplies

  • flowers / foliage: dusty purple spray roses, white lisianthus, dusty miller, silver dollar eucalyptus and seeded eucalyptus. Exact number of stems depends on your centerpiece vase / vessel. Our arrangement took 25 stems of spray roses, 10 stems of lisianthus and small bunches of both types of eucalyptus and dusty miller.
  • floral foam and sheers
  • centerpiece vessel. We recommend a low option that allows stems to flow over.

The Step by Step

Step 1: trim your stems of excess leaves and cut them down to the required length, based on the vase / vessel you’re using. You’ll want them such that they stick out and flow over the top of the vessel.

Step 2: begin building your arrangement at either end. Start with a full stem of seeded eucalyptus and a couple stems of roses for each side.

Step 3: continue the same combination along the back side of the arrangement, but also include silver dollar eucalyptus. Work the formation so that the stems spill out over the rim of your vessel.

Step 4: repeat step 3 on the front of your arrangement, then fill in the formation with the lisianthus and dusty miller to complete.

The How-To

diy winter wedding centerpiece - how to

  • create the crystals in your selected vases by following the water to crystal ratio outlined on the product packaging. Measure to create a formation that will fill approximately a quarter of each vessel. For best results let your crystals form overnight.
  • when crystals have set, take a fork to the top of them and fluff, for a perfected cracked ice effect.
  • For set up, stagger and stack your round candle filled vases and combine with pillar candles. You want your final look to look layered, complete with various angles and heights.
