How to make a Scepter Wedding Bouquet using Long Flowers
I received an SOS for help from Hettie. She is to be married and loves the blue delphiniums, anemones & the white magnolia branches we have at Prestige Botanicals. Hettie’s issue – they keep falling all over the place. That’s unfortunately what long flowers do. I’m pleased that Hettie likes the idea of holding everything firmly within the confines of a scepter / sceptre.
These are super easy to make and form the best base for a simple elegant sheath type bouquet – or should I say, a bouquet that is carried resting up your arm. First we need to make the scepter!
You will need:
- Our Delphniums, Anemones and Magnolia tulips.
- The best easiest & cheapest base is to use the cardboard inner from either parchment paper or plastic kitchen wrap.
- Material to cover the cardboard
– If possible, try and find matching material or that used in the wedding frocks/dresses.
I think that dogwood blossoms far outshine cherry or the other blossom families. The size, the beautiful white flowers with their darling little detailed petals, make these exceptional specimen blooms that really can hold their own or solo in a vase.
