Bloom

So, it’s almost the weekend and I’m off to a friends to celebrate the Bank Holiday. I always like to take a small gift with me when going to friends houses or parties, as a gesture of thanks for the invite, and I think a beautiful bouquet is perfect.

Check out the lovely instuctions below on how to make a scrumptious bouquet …

 You don’t need to do this with Peonies, but I absolutely love them and think they should be used whenever possible! There are several things that make them great flowers, but the best thing is they can be purchased quite easily when they are in season. However, once the peonies have bloomed out, they are somewhat delicate so look after them nicely! To do this bouquet you’re going to need the following:

 *A couple of meters of floristry ribbon

* Scissors

* String

* Peonies or any flower you like! (I’d go for 10 stems in a few colours)

*You need to get the flowers by re-cutting the stem on a slight angle and placing in a bucket of water for a few hours as this will prevent them from opening too quickly.

* Remove the flowers that will be inside the vase once you put them into water.

* Take a few flowers and place them in your hand and begin to group the remaining within the bouquet in groups of 3. As you begin to do this turn the bouquet to the left as this will manipulate the stems to spiral.

 * Tie the stems of your bouquet with the string.

* Now cover the string with your chosen ribbon and down towards ther bottom of them stem and you have a beautiful arrangement!

Perfection.
