Hi. My name is Christine Holanda. I'm the owner of Lily of the Valley florists in La Quinta, California. Today, I'm going to show you how to make a bridal bouquet out of seashells. We've already prepared the seashells by dipping the skewers in glue and placing them inside the seashells to secure them. Now, I've chosen quite an eclectic variety of flowers. We're starting with a tea leaf. And that is taped at the bottom to give me something to hold onto. We are adding pincushion protea. And we're just going to start by kind of placing the seashells throughout. And then we're going to add some calla lilies. Add some more seashells down here. Another protea. And this is somewhat difficult to hold onto. So you will have to adjust it accordingly kind of throughout the making of this bouquet. And then I also chose some equisetum, which is commonly known as horsetail, just to add some kind of an Asian interest. And then we're going to add a lily. These are very delicate flowers. And then at that point, you would wrap it with the ribbon of choice. Whichever ribbon you prefer to use, according to the colors, etcetera, for your wedding. And that's how you make a bridal bouquet out of seashells.
