|A very large box. I wonder what it could be...|
|It's a box full of flowers!|
|Everything laid out nicely|
Anyway, everything came packaged really well, with plastic bags over all the flower heads and the stems all tied together.
If you have a very keen eye and an even better memory, you might notice that in my previous post I said I had ordered Vibutnam, but there is no Viburnam in the picture. That's because they were all out, so I changed it to spider mums instead:
So my mum and I had a play around at making a bridesmaid bouquet - what do you think?

Next, we had a go at the birde's bouquet. This is using the same roses as the bridesmaids, plus the purple eustoma and agapanthus:

Karl also decided that he would like the green roses for the buttonholes (remember how his only choice up til now had been blue or black roses?!). I'm very happy he chose those, since they are what I wanted, lol.
I had a little play, cutting down the stem and wrapping it in ribbon to see what it would look like:
I also had a play about with making a corsage, which our mums will wear:
After that, I decided that I might as well have a go at putting the other bridesmaid bouquets together:
|Bride's, 4 bridesmaids, a buttonhole and a corsage|
I must say though, I have a new found respect for florists! It is really hard to arrange a bouquet - you need 3 hands!
Now I'm wondering if they will be ok stored as bouquets for so long, or whether I should store them as seperate stems and put them together again right before the wedding?
