DIY Peony Bouquet

BY: Anastasia Stevenson

I love peonies! Who doesn’t? I had 2 bunches of these white beauties from Fabulous Florals left over from an event and thought I would  put together a tutorial for a simple green & white bouquet.

Please excuse the grainy pictures, I used my iphone in a pinch.

 What you’ll need:

2 bunches peonies & other white flowers  and greensit  is important to get more than enough flowers because you will always need extra- just in case one is too open/closed or gets broken while styling etc.

shown: peony, ranunculus, veronica, star of bethlehem, ruscus

great substitutes: roses, garden roses.dahlia, stock,carnation,mum,eucalyptus,lily grass

Floral shears– it is important to have sharp shears! trust me

Floral tape– I prefer the light green over the dark green when available. It is softer and blends easier

Jute string: this is a such a great product! I use it on tons of projects!

Burlap or other ribbon: I did not use ribbon on this bouquet, but you may choose this route over wrapping with just string. Yu cna even use both and make a pattern with the string.

Bouquet pins: mini white are perfect

 PREP:

  • Fill buckets with water 5-7 “ deep, add one floral food packet per bucket

  • Unpack your beautiful flowers

  • Strip off all leaves that would fall below the water line

  • Cut stems 2” from the bottom and place in water immediately

  • Keep in a cool place while working, not outside

 

MAKE YOUR BOUQUET:

Use 3-5 stems to start and add stems according to your taste.

I add in the greens and any berries as accents , last.

bind the stems together with floral tape leaving about 3-5 inches at the bottoms without tape for a natural look.

wrap jute string : secure in the middle and wrap close together starting at the bottom to the top and secure with a pin

 

I use cute charms to add a little fun to my bouquets. Monograms and initials are great too! This bouquet is super easy 🙂

I hope you like it!
