Every time I turn around, it feels like another holiday is right around the corner (or a birthday, housewarming, baby shower, random party, etc). I love celebrating all of these things, but sometimes it’s hard to come up with a thoughtful gift that any recipient will be happy about. So what’s a girl to do? Make a bouquet of fresh flowers, of course. And I have a simple recipe for making your own to celebrate any occasion.
Here are the flowers you’ll need: 2 bells of Ireland // 2 purple parrot tulips // 2 stems of white stock// 2 green bouvardia (or 2 small hydrangea clusters) // 3 stems of dusty miller
Other supplies you’ll need: scissors // brown kraft paper // raffia or twine
How-To: I made this bouquet the same way I made this easy spring bouquet. So you can check out the directions and step by step photos here if you need ’em. *If that method isn’t working for you, follow this method instead – the process is a little different, but the results are the same in the end. Next, add kraft paper and tie it off with raffia. Cut the stems so they are all the same length and store in a vase with 2-3 inches of water until you are headed out the door to deliver these beauties.
