Hello my name is Crystal Nassar with Tuscany Florist in Rancho Mirage, California and I am going to show you how to make a large hydrangea bridal bouquet. I have decided to use these gorgeous white hydrangeas, they are huge heads. You don't need too many and I am just going to accent it with a little bit of green hydrangea so it is just very simple. The first thing you would do after conditioning your flowers is to take off the green, the leaves, they don't do well out of water and they'll start browning. So take off all of the greenery on the hydrangea and just put your heads together and then just put a little bit of the accent of whatever color you like. So I'm just going to add a little bit more, not too much. That's beautiful. See how easy that was. So we're going to just cut the stems a little bit, nice and even and I'm going to take the rubber band, put it around one all the way to the top as high as it can go and then just twist it around all the other stems very tight and then catch it on another stem so it stays, o'kay. So now you have your bouquet and we're going to make sure it is dry because now we're going to have the satin ribbon, place it gently. You don't want to break any of the heads and let's cut a nice long piece of ribbon, take the ribbon and tie it at the very top of the stems as high as I can go. Don't pull it too tight. You don't want to break those stems. So I have got a nice knot here and I'm going to very neatly wrap the satin around and then with the other I am going to do it opposite direction so you pull it over and now I am going to try to match the knots, the first knot with the bottom knot and now we have this beautiful hydrangea bouquet that was so easy to make. I'm going to leave the ribbon hanging. It's just so lovely and there you have it. It's very important to keep your hydrangeas in water until you are carrying them down the aisle. They are a very delicate flower especially in the heat and it is a good idea to mist them with water throughout the day. It will keep them fresh. They do drink from their heads as well as from their stems. I hope you enjoyed my demonstration on how to make a large hydrangea bouquet.
