Making a Bouquet
You will need, baby breathes, bouquet holder with foam, pink ribbon, polycia leaves, and pink-colored hydrangea. Before you start, soak the bouquet holder in water and then leave it to absorb maximum amount of water. Once it has soaked up all the water, arrange the ploycia leaves in such a way that it forms a round collar around the bouquet holder. Next, take the baby breathes and arrange them to form one more collar above the polycia leaves. While arranging these leaves and baby breathes, make sure you leave enough space for hydrangea flowers. After the leaves and baby breathes have been arranged, insert the pink ribbon through the floral wire on the bouquet holder. Then, cut out small branches of the hydrangeas and then insert them on the bouquet holder to form a ball shape. To ensure the round shape of the bouquet, insert the flowers by holding the bouquet in vertical manner so that it faces you.
Making these bouquets is very easy, since the natural shape of these flowers is like a bouquet. But, there are a few drawbacks, too. These flowers are sensitive and dehydrate very soon due to heat. Hence, you need to order the bouquets just before the wedding. Hydrangea stems are weak and can cause the flowers to drop. Thus, you should use strong bouquet bases when using these flowers. But, in spite of all these drawbacks, many brides choose hydrangeas for wedding bouquets, because of their natural exotic beauty.
