How to Make a Fresh Flower Bouquet

Overview

Regardless of the occasion, fresh bouquets bring beauty to the environment and make use of fresh flowers and foliage in a decorative way. Whether it's for a wedding or formal event, or you simply want to display it as decor, making a bouquet from fresh flowers proves to be an easy project. It allows you to make use of the flowers growing in your garden throughout the growing season, as well.

Step 1

Select a variety of fresh flowers, whether they be from your garden or another source. Popular choices include roses, daisies, carnations, lilies, orchids, snapdragons and irises.

Step 2

Select some assorted foliage from your garden to add as accent to the bouquet. Long blades of grass, thorn-free rose leaves or a couple of snips of English ivy provide greenery and texture to any bouquet.

Step 3

Select a transparent glass vase as a receptacle to the bouquet.

Step 4

Line the inner edges of the vase with foliage.

Step 5

Bundle the flowers, in an amount of your choice, and place them in the center of the vase. Allow the flowers to spread out among the foliage.

Step 6

Add optional embellishments to the bouquet, such as a silk ribbon tied in a bow around the vase.

  • Assorted fresh cut flowers
  • Tall glass vase
  • Optional embellishments (such as ribbons and rhinestones)
