Hi, I'm Becky Sosa with and I'd like to talk to you today about how to make your own bridal bouquet. We're going to do a hand-tied bouquet using Gerber Daisies. First thing you're going to want to do is pull your daisies out and make sure the stems are dry because you're going to need your floral tape to be able to stick to it. Once the stems are dry, you'll gather them together and start arranging them in a circular pattern, making sure there's daisies facing out all the way around. One of the things that I like to use daisies is because they do seem to bend a little bit so they make a nice pattern for you. Once you've got them bound up the way you like them, you're going to use floral tape or self sticky's tape to put them together. Sometimes you'll need an extra pair of hands to do this, so don't hesitate to ask someone in your family or have someone around while they're doing it. If you haven't mess with the tape before, it isn't always the easiest to use. Don't worry, if you can find green floral tape, that's usually the most popular that you're going to cover it with ribbon, so don't worry about that. This maybe exactly the way you want it or you may want to add some filler flowers; baby's breath are leaves are softening indulge, make sure they'll get tucked in. Once you have that, you're going to want to go ahead and start wrapping the ribbon around your arrangements. Let the ribbon overlap some and I find using ribbon that has a wired edge to it, you're going to enjoy more. This is a sheer ribbon so you can see through it, so you definitely would want to have used the green tape in this case or you're going to want to put a couple of layers of the ribbon around it. Once you get to the bottom of the ribbon, you can tuck it under or you can use decorative pins to put it in place. I like to add just a little bit of a bow to mine at the top. And again, the wired ribbon makes that a lot easier to do. And here you'll have your hand-tied bridal bouquet.
