OOOOw, that looks like it will be great!  I think there are many diy wedding postings for this on the web.  Are you going to do it with just the babbles?  Or are you adding anything else, like feathers, or satin yo-yo’s or flowers?   I can’t wait to hear more, and see it!  I wish I had someone to make one for, because I think it would be cool to try it!  Do you think it would be too early to start one for my three y. o. granddaughter???  lol.  I’m so silly!  If I had one to make, I think I would start with your shape (round styrofoam ball?) and attach either a feather boa around it, or  place ostrich or peacock feathers around in a circle 2/3 down – I guess you’d have to determine how you were going to hold it-maybe a dowel on the bottom, covered with satin ribbon?  and then place your babbles in as you like them-I’m not sure whether I would start at the top/center, or around your base?-Or maybe putting your favorite ones on the top, and then starting at the base and working up toward the top/center and fill in around your favorites.  Just a guess?  Best wishes,  I am sure it will come out gorgeous!

They are not easy to make and take days to create just one of these amazing and super detailed Bouquets

true works of art and should will be best left to the designer…. This is a pic of my best friends bouquet and I can’t wait for mine 🙂

Have fun [attachment=881204,109723]

Awesome! Miss Stripes posted this morning about how she is making a brooch bouquet too: http://www.weddingbee.com/2010/04/11/you-can-learn-a-lot-of-things-from-the-flowers%E2%80%A6/

 

I found this tip here: “The structure is built up with wire. Basically you make sprigs of button and brooch ‘flowers’ and then intertwine them all together with more wire. A silver or gold wire works best so it blends in with the overall design.

I found it easier to place a large brooch in the centre of the bouquet. This gives you a central point to work from, a central brooch with a slight curve to it lends to a nice ‘bouquet’ shape.”
