I was watching this tutorial the other night. she made a gorgeous bouquet! I’m not sure how many or what flowers we’re getting yet.. but the video is very informative about how many she includes of each kind.  I think there are 3 or 4 parts to this video.

I would try youtube for tutorials. My mom is doing my flowers (real flowers) and she found tons of great tutorials on there.

Personally I wouldnt mix silk with real touch, but thats just me. If you do all silk thats fine or all real touch but the two together will just make the silk ones look more fake. My bouquet will be real touch n then my pomanders are silk. But luckily my bouquet will be relatively easy to make because it will be made up of the same flower [calla lillies]

I hope I can explain this right.

I always angle the flowers, don’t worry about the stems sticking out.  When you get about 3 to 5 stems(depending on the flower size) at the correct angle.  Tape them together with floral tape.  Just enough to secure them and keep them from shifting. Then add another few stems, tape again. Turn the bouquet as you add more stems.

This method always works the best for me. Another tip, I always put bouquets together in front of the mirror, it helps me get a much better idea of how it’s coming along.

@cllyons: This is gorgeous! Stupid question, but how did you get the ribbons and pearls on the bottom to look like that?
