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!
