Make your own beautiful bridal bouquet in blue, coral and white, with Pumpkin & Pye

These flowers make me think of the seaside… the colours are magical, they’re light and dreamy… and perfect for a summer wedding. The loveliest thing about the bouquet is that it’s one you can make at home with quality silk flowers and our step by step tutorial by lovely Natasha at Pumpkin & Pye.

Where to find quality silk flowers

Artificial flowers come in all shapes and sizes, and the quality varies hugely: garden centres and home stores sell the cheapest they can get. The only way to source really lovely silk blooms is online, and Natasha recommends Afloral.com whose website is testament to the pride they take in sourcing only the very best. Do take a look at Afloral online.

Make your own blue, coral and white bridal bouquet

You will need:-

artificial flowers and foliages of your choice, wire cutters, satin ribbon, floral twine, scissors and pearl pins

Step 1:.

Use wire cutters to trim off all the excess leaves, leaving only leaves close to the flower head.

Step 2:

Select a few of your larger focal flower heads as a starting point to build your bouquet, try to spiral the stems as you add them.

Step 3-4:

Add other flowers/foliage around your focal flowers, making sure you keep a rounded even shape. Turning the bouquet in your hand makes adding flowers easier.

Step 5-6:

Using the floral twine tie the stem of the bouquet tightly near the top of the stems.

Step 8:

Using a ribbon of your choice (in this case mint satin), wrap the ribbon tightly around the top half of the stems and pin to secure with pearl headed pins
