Bridal Bouquet

I did the flowers for a wedding today, and as usual I didn’t get very good pictures, but  they were very pretty.

Lots and lots of roses. This is the bridal bouquet

    I like the different colors of roses. What basis do you use for the bouquet? Moss, plastic handle or original stems? For my Examination as a florist I chose champagne-colored roses and light blue freesia for the bridel bouqet. Now that’s also been 20 years ago…

        I think so too.
