Hi I'm Melissa Seykora with A Village of Flowers in Nashville, Tennessee and I am going to show you how to make a bride bouquet. I'm going to start with a beautiful cymbidium orchid and they come in a long stem with lots of blooms but we want to be able to use them just peeking out of hydrangea so we're going to wire them to give the individual blooms their own long stem and we're going to wrap them with floral tape, just pull and twist all the way down to cover the wire and next we're going to start with hydrangea, take off all the leaves. Three makes kind of a nice triangle base so it doesn't look too small with one or off center with two. Next we're going to add the calla lilies, these gorgeous open calla lilies from California and it's easier if you cut the stems a little bit before you put them into the bouquet and calla lilies have such a gorgeous shape. These I'm going to angle in different directions. Next I'm going to add the orchids that we wired. It's kind of a little bit more symmetrical look and we're going to fill in with these really pretty porcelina spray roses. This would be on the larger side of a bridal bouquet and then we're going to add these mini calla lilies for a little bit more depth and variation and it will also match the groom's boutonniere and the mini callas are great for corsages for the mothers or little mini nosegays. You could wear these on your wrist or as a pin on and you want to pull these calla lilies from the bottom if you want to adjust the height because they easily bend and you don't want them to brown so try to find the stem that you're trying to pull and there is a really beautiful bride bouquet and later we would wrap that with ribbon.
