Hi, my name is Christine Holanda. I'm the owner of Lily of the Valley Florist in La Quinta California. Today I'm going to show you how to make a ball wedding bouquet. First of all you're going to start with, it's kind of wedding bouquet holder of some sort. There's many different varieties. And it comes with a foam that you need to soak in water prior to making your arrangement so that is wet and your flowers can drink water. And then you just simply begin by adding the stems kind of in a downward position. And you continue to do that all the way around. And then you add your secondary flower which can be any of your choice. I've chosen these wonderful fragrant Oriental lilies. And you just fill in the spaces between the bottom flower which ever one you choose for that. We obviously have chosen red roses for that. And you continue all the way around. And you just continue to add flowers, to fill in. And then at the very top you can add another lily. And you just continue to go around until you have a desired effect. Now you also may want to add greens into the bottom to crown the whole arrangement. And you want to cover the container I mean cover the holder so that no one can see it. Basically cover your work. And then with the holder depending on how ornate or not ornate it is you can either wrap the handle or leave it natural. And this is how you make a ball wedding bouquet.
