Flower Chic: Purple, Red, & Pink, Spring Bouquet

I love unexpected color combos and this spring bouquet, with its mix of purple, red, and pink, definitely fits the bill. I wanted the colors of this bouquet to almost be a transition between the holiday colors of Valentine’s Day & Easter…

I layered two ribbons, a gauzy purple/red ribbon over soft lavender.

Deep red ranunculus were contrasted against dark purple sweet pea.

To create this bouquet you need:

-1 bunch purple clematis

-1 bunch purple hellebore

-1 bunch red ranunculus

-I bunch pink anenomes

-1 bunch dark purple sweet pea

Begin by placing 3 flowers in your hand and then adding more flowers, going around the bouqet to maintain a round shape. Finish by winding stretchy floral tape around your stems to keep them together. Then wrap lavender ribbon to cover the tape, and pin with a pearl headed pin to hold the ribbon in place. Then cut two lengths of ribbon, lavender and purple/red, and wrap around the bouquet and tie into a bow. And now you have a perfect spring bouquet!
