    That is what we plan on doing! Blue orchids are our main flower! Seeing that reminds me of how pretty it will look.

    I would stick to 2 stems. 1 might not be enough and 3 would be so full you would lose the look of the flower and end up with just a crowded vase of pretty colors.

    great choice! We did one stem. I felt that 2 was too much but I guess it depends on how open the blooms are too. And I prefer the CP’s without the mirror.

    @JessicaDolly: I actually have 2 main flowers. Blue orchids and Calla lilies. This is how she describes my boquet on the contract:

    Bold Blooms of Blue and Purple Hydrangea, Lisianthus/Stock and Blue/Green Orchids with White Miniature Calla Lily Accents; Rhinestone and AB Swarovski Crystals within Bouquet;

    My BM’s have calla bouquets so that wouldn’t help you much but all my men have orchid bouts with grass loops with the exception of Mr Hedgie who’s will have a calla and orchid bout.

    The moms are having orchid and Calla lilie mix corsages and nosegays.

    I wish I would give you a better idea with pictures. I wish I could give ME a better idea with pictures too! But since she hasn’t ever made these arrangements before she doesn’t have pictures of them… sad… lol


    But good luck! It’s great to see somebody else with my flower! It is just too pretty.

    I’m doing submerged orchids. I was originally going to do like you are doing and my florist recommended using 2 stems. However, I’m now going to do them on a string so each bloom would be tied on a clear string but still using about 2 stems worths of flowers total.

    I really love the blue orchids and was planning on doing something very similar, but I was told that the dye from the orchids will turn the water colors.
