wifey2be:  They definitely do say Australian rustic to me! Agree that more greenery would be good and pulled down lower. I like bouquets with different levels but not quite as different as that. Maybe you could consider as well using some of the greyer gum leaves that are smaller and more round (along with the green long ones)? I think that would work well to fill out the bouquet and the gaps but they would sit lower too?  They put some in my bouquet, which was not what I was expecting, but it worked ok.

wifey2be:  TBH as I read down the list of “ingredients” I was pretty doubtful, sounded like a strange mix. But when I saw the pics I changed my mind, you’ve done a great job!

Ooooh! I looooove your bouquets!! Absolutely gorgeous! So unique and special.

Where you said you wanted to put more greenery in, have you thought about rolling the gum leaves? Whilst they’re still pliable, roll them and staple with a green staple. The staple will be concealed lower down, and if you get small staples, you won’t have to worry about the sides poking out and being sharp. You’ll get volume, a nice shape and more green.

Very beautiful, although I love Pride and Prejudice too (it is my all time favourite book!) I am one of those book lovers that couldn’t imagine destroying a book like that, although it does look good and you have done well. You should be very proud, it takes a lot of talent and hard work to create bouquets as well done as those 🙂
