As much as we would like to believe we are perfect and that we can do anything, I was suddenly faced with a daunting task. My sister was getting married in a week and I blatantly said, "I'll make your bouquet!" Whoa, where did that come from? It was the Wonderwoman in me. I started to think of logistics: it will take me at least an hour, I need supplies, and I need fresh flowers! I also wanted to make sure I knew what I was doing: YOUTUBE! After reviewing 3 different videos they all had the same message, rotate as you go and keep checking your work. So...with floral tape, $15 worth of dahlias from Trader Joe's, satin ribbon, pearlized pins and sheer determination:
|Bridal Bouquet Total: $20|
Learning a New Skill: Priceless
|Ouch! Be sure to run your hand along the |
stems after each pin is inserted to ensure
the bride is crying for the right reason.
|I even had enough for a boutonniere!|
