Hi! I'm Karen Rodowicz, owner of JK Flowers and I'm here to show you how to make a teardrop bouquet. First, you want to start off with your floral bouquet holder and then you're going to work with your greens, can start off with the small ones on top, the larger ones on the bottom. At that point, you have to figure out how long you want your teardrop bouquet to be. So, what I'm going to do is start with my longest point which I want to figure out to be there so I'm going to cut my rose stem to be about that size. I'm going to place it in my bouquet holder and now I know my teardrop will be at least that long. To center my bouquet, I want to do the next rose right in the center and now I know the dimensions of how my bouquet is going to look. I then take the rest of my roses and cut them accordingly, and build it up like a triangle but backwards. So, you want the longest point at the bottom and work your way up. Continue on and on until you come to the top, fill in with the rest of the roses, you can fill in with some small greenery or even some filler flowers like these in between your roses. Once your bouquet is done you can have a beautiful bouquet like this and I hope that will be helpful. Karen Rodowicz, JK Flowers.
