It’s not that hard. Be patient when arranging the poppies so you get a nice full round shape. Print your inspiration pic for reference and post it on the wall so you know when to incorporate the berries. Have a friend check it for shape. Another trick is to take pictures of it  before you finalize anything.It is so much easier to put things in perspective in a picture.

There are lots of tutorials online.

I believe those are actually anemones (not poppies). You may be able to buy them from a local florist or flower market, or you can order them wholesale. Fifty Flowers carries them and I’m sure a bunch of other online flower wholesalers do as well:

Hi eliseemma!  How did this ended?  Did you get your red poppy bouquet?

I am in the same situation as you are… I love anemones and in Mexico they don’t import white ones and specially not in my wedding date, so I had been doing some try outs and I made the flowers in fabric and then assembled my bouquet… I am still not sure, as they are not natural and that worries me a lot.   I found it very pretty when I look at it and make me proud of it, but I still think it is made of fabric… what do you think?  If you like it I can show you how to do the flowers… easier than it looks (it will take you a couple of days of work though) but I think they are quite similar…
